A healthier version of an unhealthy favorite.

Top Review by MichelaCH

I've made this a bunch and my family loves it! I love it because it is sooo much healthier than the full fat version--you can feel good about eating it. Love making the adding broccoli to the pasta with this sauce--delicious and one of my daughter's favorite dinners.
