    jonesies's Note:

    Becoming nutrition-conscious doesn't mean you have to give up favorites like Fettucine Alfredo. This is a light version of the classic - delectable but with a fraction of the fat. Toss with pasta, use as sauce for chicken - the possibilities are endless!

      We love this recipe.I added sauteed mushrooms and ham(I usually add this to my Alfredo). So tasty and yet so low fat compared to the real thing which I have quit making.I admit it is not as creamy as the the Alfredo sauce so the name describes it very well.I will make it again for sure.Thank you for posting.I made this for PT.
