You can still enjoy a creamy and decadent white sauce but without all the guilt by using evaporated skim milk in place of heavy cream.


  • 1 pound fettuccine, uncooked
  • 1 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese plus to serve
  • 4 ounces green onions, sliced- white parts only
  • white pepper to taste


  1. Cook the fettuccine according to package directions, drain well and then place back into the pot.
  2. Put the evaporated milk in a saucepan and simmer over medium heat. Add the parmesan cheese, onions and parsley to the pan and whisk vigorously until the cheese has melted.
  3. Pour the sauce over the pasta and then toss well to coat. Season to taste with a few pinches of salt and white pepper, and then serve topped with some additional parmesan cheese.
