Ww Fettuccine Alfredo

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by teresas

This is an outstanding dish. I always add some shrimp and mushrooms to the dish. I know the shimp adds more points but it is so worth it. Without the shrimp and mushrooms you get 7 points per serving. Serving size is 1 cup. Serve piping hot while it's creamiest. Happy eating.

I LOVE this recipe. It's the best fettuccine I've ever had! I lightened it even more by skipping the butter and using a tiny bit of olive oil, using reduced fat parm (from the can), whole wheat flour and whole wheat pasta. I also toss in some grated chicken bouillion and powdered onion, and I cut up roasted chicken to toss in as well. I counted 4 points per cup and for taste this good, you can't beat that.
