Love cheesy pasta dishes, but you need to avoid dairy? If so, you’re going to love the simplicity, creaminess, and delightful flavor of this Dairy Free One Pot Fettuccine Alfredo recipe!
Last spring, I was constantly feeling bloated, sluggish, and just plain gross every single time I consumed dairy. This was a real buzzkill to me, because I love cheese and ice cream. Who doesn’t, right? But in an effort to put my health first, I began weaning it out of my diet just to see what happened. The results just within the first two weeks were incredible – I felt more like “me” again, and vowed to keep my dairy intake in check. One of the first things I did was create modifications for all of my favorite recipes. While I haven’t given up dairy entirely, some of my modified recipes are so good I actually prefer them!
Dairy Free One Pot Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe
At the top of my favorites list is this Dairy Free One Pot Fettuccine Alfredo; what’s not to love about a hearty meal that can be prepped and made all in one pot?
The problem was that it involved multiple types of dairy, so I made it my mission to find substitutes that still tasted delicious. I can proudly say that with a little bit of trial and error, I’ve arrived at a true dinner winner!
- 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp soybean margarine
- 1.5 cans full fat coconut milk
- 1 box fettuccine noodles
- 1 cup dairy-free Parmesan, shredded
- parsley to garnish
- Add the garlic and olive oil into your sauté pan over medium heat until aromatic.
- When aromatic, add the coconut milk, margarine, and noodles to the pan.

- Noodles will be cooked and sauce will be creamy in about 20 minutes.
- Garnish with fresh parsley and serve immediately.
Home Chef Tip: This meal is delicious and filling on its own, but adding roasted vegetables, like broccoli or squash, and mixing them in prior to serving brings this dish to a new level.
If you’re used to a very thick, cheesy Alfredo, I don’t want you to be disappointed – this recipe is not where you will find such a sauce. That said, my cheese-loving husband didn’t even realize the meal was dairy free and went back for seconds the first time I made it!
My sauce recipe lightly coats the pasta and gives a rich, salty flavor to this meal that the whole family can enjoy. The best part? There’s only one pot to clean later!
