    Came up with this recipe while trying to use up what's left in the fridge before moving day. The Weight Watchers cream cheese gives it the richness of an Alfredo sauce without the guilt.

      This was our dinner last night and so glad I picked it. The taste was light and fresh. The only differance I did was use regular cream cheese; no weight watchers here in Beijing that I've been able to find. I even had to go to a special expat store to find he cream cheese and fettucine. But it's so worth the effort. Made for PAC Spring 2010

      Amazing, Easy, Impressive.
      I did not plan ahead and buy the exact ingredients for this but I used penne regate and light butter and 1/3 less fat creme cheese. My daughter, who does not typically like pasta said, "Mom this is REALLY good!" I felt good about the reduction in calories and I loved the short list of ingredients. I can honestly tell you that this will go in my BEST OF ZAAR SO FAR cookbook and it will be something that I will make on a regular basis. Thanks so much.
