Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo
November 01, 2015
""This is another great recipe I got out of a magazine called "Clean Eating". It is a great tasting low fat, low sugar dish. Both DH and I thought it was excellent!! (until we went out for dinner on Valentine's day and had the FULL FAT dish.) But, you still have a wonderful option to eat something that is lower in fat and sugar but still taste great. Hope you enjoy.""
