30 Days No Meat, No Alcohol: Spinach Mushroom Alfredo Recipe

While on my 30 Days No Meat, No Alcohol fast I made a dish that everyone really liked. Since then several people have asked me for the recipe. Hope you enjoy this meatless recipe as much as I did.

Spinach Mushroom Alfredo

I used the Alfred recipe from Olive Garden

Alfredo Sauce

Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 10 Min
Serving Size: 4

1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup imported Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup imported Romano cheese, grated
6 egg yolks from fresh jumbo eggs
Salt and black pepper to taste

1. HEAT milk and cream in a heavy bottom saucepan until it begins to simmer. Turn off heat. Slowly whip in cheese, and then remove from heat.
2. PLACE egg yolks in a separate bowl and slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture. Slowly add egg yolk mixture back into remaining cream mixture. Place back on very low heat and continually stir until simmering. Take sauce off heat so it thickens. (This will increase temperature of egg yolks, known as tempering).
3. SEASON to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve over your favorite pasta.

Spinach Mushroom Alfredo

1 Bag of Fresh Spinach Leaves
1 Container Mushrooms
1 Garlic Clove
1/2 Onion

Sautee spinach leaves, mushroom pieces, chopped onion, and garlic cloves in a pan with 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil. Lightly stir until spinach is fully wilted and then add Alfredo Sauce.

Serve over fettuccini noodles. Sprinkle fresh lemon juice and basil on top for added flavor.

  1. Ooooooh child! i did not know u could get olive garden recipes on their site! THANK YOU!!! Oh… and before i saw THAT part of the post, i was gonna say goodluck with your new challenge lol! i know u can do this one too.. wish i had ur willpower when it came to these sorts of challenges. how’s it going so far?

    • Yes, Olive Garden recipes are great, plus you get to make them at home so they’re not as fattening. I love to cook just as much as I love saving money so I’m always looking for a way to stay out of restaurants. This is day 4 of the new challenge and it’s going ok. I’m hoping I can stick with it. This is also my 4th straight day of Turbo Jam. WOOOOHOOOO! lol. I’m still looking for a good gym to join and then it’s really on. Turbo Jam in the morning, gym in the afternoons. I have plans for this summer.
