"A low-fat alternative to a traditional Alfredo sauce. I add chicken, most of the time, to make it a complete meal!"

A nice twist on alfredo! I did make a few modifications though. I substituted chicken broth for the butter, lowfat evaporated milk for the regular skim, and lowfat ricotta for the part-skim. I also added a hefty shake of white pepper. The consistency was smooth and perfect! Also, no need to steam the broccoli separately - just throw it in the pasta pot during the last 2-3 minutes of boiling.

This was awesome! I added shrimp, fresh chopped garlic and fresh spinach leaves. It was delicious!
