You need the fat to get your desired result. Go cream.

I totally agree with Lorigoldsby if you're in a pinch and unable to get to the store. Solid "emergency" rescue. :)

A note about Alfredo. Yes, it does require cream in the modern version. But although fettucine alfredo originated in Rome, the Romans have all but disowned it. There are places which will sell the dish to tourists who have fond memories of Olive Garden but hardly a single contemporary Roman cookbook bothers to mention it. It's origin is fettucine with "triple butter" which really is authentically Roman. A lot of butter and a lot of cheese and Romans do love fettucine.

You can use condensed milk, but it wouldn't taste as good...
