  • 2 tbs cup cream cheese (115g)
  • 1/3 cup water (83g)

  • 1/4 tsp MSG (Accent) (0.7g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt (0.3g)

This recipe makes a single portion, is not low salt but would be rather bland without the seasonings. Makes use of cream cheese instead of milk or cream.

STEP 1: Drop the dry pasta in boiling water. Make sure that the fettucine don't stick to each other by moving them around a lot in the first minute of boiling. Boil according to the timing on the package, usually 8-9 minutes.
STEP 2: While the fettucine are boiling, in another pot, melt the cream cheese on medium heat and stir until soft and creamy.
STEP 3: Mix the water and the cornstarch together. Gradually add the water/starch to the cream cheese while stirring. Add MSG, salt and pepper.
STEP 4: Garnish with fresh parmesan.
