When we treat ourselves to Olive Garden, I order the Herbed Salmon Alfredo--sub extra broccoli for the pasta. (Even when I'm not on Atkins, I don't like pasta.) It is delicious!
After reading and calculating the nutritional info on the Alfredo sauce, this definitely has to be a treat. But, it is still Atkins-friendly and a great choice--as long as you substitute broccoli for the pasta.
- Notice that, as served at Olive Garden, the sauce is 9.3 gr of carbohydrates. That's for 1/4 of the recipe, which is almost 1 cup of sauce.
- I think I'd make the recipe and figure out how many servings it would be for 1/4 cup (the portion size for commercially-canned sauce).
- If you use all heavy cream (instead of 1.5 cups of milk) and divide the whole into 4 servings, you drop the carbs down to 7.6 nC per serving.
Here is the nutritional info (just the sauce, not the salmon or veggies), from SparkPeople RecipeBuilder, as usual.
