Skinny Tomato Alfredo Sauce Recipe
I love Alfredo Sauce. I love Marinara Sauce. I love Pasta. So, I decided to make a sauce that had my two favorite sauces in one. I know that Alfredo Sauce can be a bit heavy, so mine is a Skinny version of course 🙂 When Dei Frattelli contacted me and asked if I would share a sauce recipe for their Great 8 Sauce Challenge, I knew this Skinny Tomato Alfredo Sauce was the one I wanted to submit.
You don’t need a lot of ingredients and it’s actually very easy to make. Oh and the flavors….they are amazing.
First, you will make your Marinara Sauce by putting the two cans of diced tomatoes and the can of sauce in a pot on your stove and just let it simmer while you make the Skinny Alfredo Sauce.
The Skinny Alfredo Sauce will actually ready in under 10 minutes!
Just look at those two sauces! Don’t they both look absolutely delicious?
Once your Alfredo Sauce is made, you slowly add in the Marinara Sauce.
I added in about half of the tomato sauce. The best part about that is that I now have a delicious Marinara sauce that I can freeze or just use later in the week in a different recipe 🙂
