Whole Wheat Garlic Fettuccine Alfredo Pasta

Last updated:

Cooking a simple and healthy dinner might seem hard to do but when you’re using pasta that cooks in only 3 minutes- yes just 3 minutes, it’s not as difficult as you might think! I make a delicious whole wheat garlic fettuccine Alfredo with just butter, shredded Parmesan and salt to taste and pair this with fresh steamed broccoli and everyone’s happy!


Boil the noodles as directed and yes they should be firm so don’t go beyond 3 minutes! While boiling the noodles steam the broccoli and melt the butter over the stove. Drain your noodles (don’t rinse them) saving a little of the hot water. Add butter and 1 ½ cups of shredded Parmesan and toss together gently adding a little of the hot steamy water from the boiling noodles, this will help to thin the sauce and melt the cheese. I save roughly ¼ cup of the hot water.  Gently mix until all of the noodles are covered with the butter and melting Parmesan.

This is not a creamy version but delicious nonetheless. Serve with steamed broccoli on top of the noodles and sprinkled with remaining Parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper as desired. Serves 4-5 people and we almost never have left overs with this dish!

The whole wheat garlic pasta has 6 grams of fiber and includes ALA omega 3. A good for you pasta that tastes to die for, nobody will even complain that you’re making a whole wheat pasta, I promise! Thanks Al Dente® for making such healthy and great tasting noodles!
