I think I've mentioned before, how much I dearly love Alfredo. Here is a recipe that I just created tonight for my supper. I am on the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and this version contains 12 points. This is a single serving recipe, so of course you'd want to multiply it by how ever many people you need to feed. I hope you enjoy it!
