I liked it due to its simplicity and that it's low-fat, but had to make some adjustments. I used whole-wheat fettuccine, and added broccoli in with the fettuccine for last 3 min of the cooktime. Meanwhile, I sauteed a small onion (sliced) with baby bella mushrooms (salt, pepper, garlic salt); additionally, I threw chicken tenderloins on the Foreman (salt, pepper, garlic salt). This came out a little bland. Part of this is my fault - I likely should have made more sauce to compensate for the added veggies and chicken. However, I think next time I will make sure to sautee the baby bellas with some red pepper flakes for added kick. Great base recipe though, and I will use this again - with my adjustments.

I made this for my husband and I as a quick lunch yesterday. I used whole wheat pasta. Very simple and filling but bland. Next time, I'll add some fresh minced garlic. Yes, I get that it's reduced fat but that dosen't mean sacrificing flavor.

This was aewsome!!! Sauce was amazing! People are forgetting this is virtually a fat free alfredo sauce! I did fat free cream cheese spread instead and it was to die for still! I didn't mix the sauce with the noodles, I cooked noodles, put them over a plate, then put the chicken slices on the noodles pouring sauce over it. I also used entire box of fettucini and just 1 and a halfed the sauce recipe and it perfectly fed 4 people.
