To keep the fat low, but the flavor high, evaporated skim milk is used in the sauce. A little swiss cheese boosts the flavor even more. Found in BH&G New Dieter's cookbook.

This is keeper in my book. It's a true pleasure to have pasta and know that it not only very tasty but well within the "healthy" limits. I chose to use cauliflower as I had it on hand and I used 1 Tbs of parm cheese. The sauce is made in the time it takes for the pasta to cook and is very simple to put together.

Delicious!! This dish was a quick and easy way to use up leftover ham from Easter. The fact that it is lower in fat is a big bonus. I thought that I had fettuccine noodles on hand but I didn't, so I used bowtie pasta instead. My family really liked this dish, and I will definitely be making it again. Thank you for sharing.
