I don't eat pasta so I was wondering what can I do with Alfredo sauce?  Any ideas?

THANKS!

What to put Alfredo sauce on? 

You could put it over squash.  I would imagine it would taste good on Speghetti squash with some turky meatballs--that actually sounds like it would be good.  There's always chicken to put some on.

I've never made spaghetti squash but I've wanted to try it.  That would be a great way to get the "pasta feeling".  I'll have to get brave and give it a try!

How do you make spaghetti squash?  Never heard of it before and it sounds pretty good...

Isn't this sauce very high in calories?

Alfredo sauce is unbelievably fattening and has no nutritional value. To be honest, I wouldn't probably pick that as a choice after gastric bypass. Has your nutritionist given you any guidelines with respect to high fat cream sauces? You might want to touch base with her and get some guidance so that you can make the changes you'll need to make long-term. You also may experience dumping with something with so much fat in it too. I'm just trying to help because as you get further out, things get harder and while you may lose weight early on still eating these kinds of things, it will make you gain later. Alfredo sauce is about the same in calories and fat as hot fudge, and may be even higher. It's just so important to change these habits so that when you want to maintain, it's not as hard.

I just looked. Alfredo sauce is 99% pure fat. One cup is 996 calories.and 99.82 grams of fat! Probably the most fattening thing there is to put on food. I would really suggest you see about some nutritional counseling so that you can see the calorie counts of foods. It will help so much as you go through this journey. A lot of things have hidden calories and we don't realize we are sabotaging our success unless we are careful.

Huh...Fitday lists the nutrition as 250 calories and 17 grams of fat...

http://www.fitday.com/webfit/nutrition/all_foods/dairy_and_e ggs/alfredo_sauce.html

Also 7 grams of protein.  Of course values would vary according to the recipe and you can make alterations to reduce the fat, but 900+ calories!  Not sure where that came from...
