low carb : fettuccini alfredo

Makes: 1 serving



  • Pasta:

  1. Blend the eggs, cream cheese, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in a magic bullet or blender.

  2. Pour into a butter-greased 8 x 8 pan.

  3. Bake at 325 for 8 minutes or until just set.

  4. Remove and let cool for about 5 minutes.

  5. Using a spatula, gently release the sheet of “pasta” from the pan.

  6. Roll it up and slice with a sharp knife into 1/8 inch thick slices.

  7. Gently unroll and set aside.

  • Sauce:

  1. Combine the mascarpone, parmesan cheese, and butter in a small bowl.

  2. Microwave on high for 30 seconds.

  3. Whisk.

  4. Microwave on high another 30 seconds.

  5. Whisk again until smooth (this may take a minute because the sauce will have separated – keep whisking and it will come back together!)

  6. Add the pasta to the hot sauce and toss gently.

  7. Serve immediately with more freshly ground black pepper if desired
