    Lainey6605's Note:

    To reduce calories, fat and sodium, you can opt for a light Alfredo sauce. For a spicier dish, increase the amount of chipotle chiles. Recipe is from Family Circle. I like to use "The Best Alfredo Sauce" for the prepared alfredo sauce.

      Absolutely great, a fast family favorite. You can adjust the heat yourself. I add some steamed broccoli to get a balanced meal in one dish. We have this dish often, even great on those busy weeknights cuz it's so quick!!!

      This was a very nice main dish! Cooked up fast yet had the flavor of a dish that cooked all day. The heat from the chipotle was so wonderfully complimented by the maple syrup. What an interesting combo! It works really well! I used turkey bacon for regular and I doubled the chipotle- we love hot and spicy. I used a regular fat alfredo- the fresh kind from the deli counter because this whole dish has only 10 fat grams so I figured why not? I usually always have penne in the pantry and was really mad that I did not have any. I had to use some elbows (elbow rigate) because I wanted a similar shape so the sauce gets in the center of the noodle like it would with penne. The elbow rigate worked fine but the penne would look so much nicer. This is a fantastic dish Lainey. *Made for ZWT Canada Family Picks*
