It's a shame that alfredo is, for most people an occasional indulgence. Now, with this recipe cutting gobs of fat and cheese, it makes a great candidate for weeknight cooking. You'll be surprised that the trick is using a butter and flour roux to provide the same mouth feel as thickened heavy cream. To help speed up this recipe, prepare the sauce while bringing the water to a boil.
