No Guilt Fettuccine

In honor of National Fettuccine Alfredo Day (tomorrow…yay!), HG's whipped up yet another delicious and completely guilt-free Alfredo dish. A heaping bowl of our creamy pasta with chicken has less than one-fifth the amount of calories in Macaroni Grill's ridiculous version. And ours will also save you more than 90 fat grams. Yes, NINETY! Check it out:


1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki noodles, Fettuccine Shape**
1 wedge The Laughing Cow cheese, Light Original Swiss
2 tsp. fat-free sour cream
2 tsp. reduced fat grated parmesan cheese
5 oz. skinless chicken breast; grilled with nonstick spray only
Optional: salt, pepper, and paprika


Drain and rinse noodles well. Dry noodles thoroughly (use paper towels to soak up as much moisture as possible) and use a knife to slice them up a bit. Next, top noodles with both cheeses and fat-free sour cream, then microwave for one minute. Stir and microwave for one additional minute. Slice up chicken breast and add to pasta. For added zing, season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika. Enjoy!
