Light and creamy Garlic Fettuccine with chicken

Nor M.


I love cream sauces. I don't like the fat or calories. I came up with this dish. It is low fat,and delicious. regular Alfredo sauce has about 40 grams of fat per 1/2 cup.Trimming it down. I made this dish at 12 grams of fat per serving.This sauce can be served over chicken or Shrimp.
