Ww Fettuccine Alfredo

"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."

Questions & Replies

  1. How many points is a serving though?


  1. 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.
  2. How does adding shrimp to the dish add points since shrimp are free?
  3. I use to make the "full fat" version of this for my daughter all the time when she was growing up.....she just loved it! Now that she is grown I can't wait to share this low fat version. She'll be very happy to be able to enjoy these flavors again without the guilt. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.
  4. If I hadn't made this myself I would not have believed that this was low fat.....I could diet every day if food tasted this good.!!!<br/>YUM!!!<br/>Made for PRMR.
  5. Outstanding!!! I was a bit hesitant to try this recipe, as I have tried others with cream cheese and it wasn't a great dish for us, but with the wonderful reviews and it being a WW recipe, I had to try it!! To me, I didn't notice/taste that there was any cream cheese in the dish, which has been my problem in previous recipes with cream cheese. I think because it is a light cream cheese and not a major percentage of the ingredients, that it worked out well for us. This is definitely one that will be a repeat for us from now on!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game.
