My kids eat seafood once a week and one of their favorite ways to enjoy it is with my easy gluten free alfredo sauce. I have tried several different types of sauce for cod, but alfredo seems to be their favorite! Cod and pasta are naturals together!

If your family is like mine, school nights are so busy it is hard to find time to share a nutritious family dinner. Family dinners are such an important meal.
This is the time to hear your children’s stories about their day and discuss interesting topics. When families rush because of sports and other activities, family communication can go downhill fast.
Dinner in under 30 minutes
You read that correctly :-).
In less than 30 minutes, you can throw together this whole healthy gluten free cod fettuccine alfredo pasta recipe. Your whole family will love it, even the kids!! (Most of the time it takes to cook is waiting for your pasta water to boil :-)).
How to make cod fettuccine alfredo:
Saute the cod with olive oil and fresh basil in a skillet over medium heat.
Can you use a different type of seafood for this recipe?
You can use any seafood for this recipe. I like cod because it breaks up into chunks easily, but you can use shrimp, scallops, salmon, or any seafood you like.
Heat the heavy cream, butter, salt, and pepper in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
Once the cod is cooked, drain the cooking juices and chop it into large pieces.
Cool your pasta according to package directions. If you like these thick pasta noodles, I used Jovial brown rice tagliatelle. Add pasta and cod to the creamy alfredo sauce. Toss to coat and sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top. Serve hot!
Is fettuccine alfredo healthy?
I have to admit, this isn’t the healthiest meal, adding healthy seafood definitely adds to the protein and nutrient content! I wish heavy cream had no calories!!
