Laughing all the way to the scale
I usually try to find ways to lighten up dishes…especially rich, creamy ones laden with fat from cream, butter or any of those other heavy ingredients we all know and love. If you want to eat dishes like this more than once in a blue moon, you need to come up with a healthy alternative.
Have you ever made sauce from it? It’s like magic. It replaces so much of the “bad stuff”, as you’ll see in the recipe below. You can use any of the flavors they have…this time around I used their light blue cheese wedge. Yum.
I created this sauce for a pasta dish I made with shrimp, broccoli and grape tomatoes…but any protein or veggies would do. It was delicious, and guilt free! So keep your eyes wide open when you hit the scale 🙂
Creamy Blue Cheese Sauce (guilt-free!)
1 tablespoon butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon flour
1 1/2 cups skim milk
3 wedges Laughing Cow blue cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until it just reaches a boil. Add to your favorite pasta/veggie/protein combination.
