Skinny Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

Skinny Chicken Alfredo Pasta Bake

Mmmm....there is nothing I like more than a creamy cheesy alfredo pasta. Except when you have a metabolism like mine and consuming this rich pasta would immediately add a few inches to the waistline. The #1 reason why I never make it even thought it is an absolute favorite of the husbands. I decided why not experiment with a few ingredients and come up with a lower calorie alfredo pasta. I'm happy to say that my version was just as good as a traditional alfredo but with half the calories and fat! A win/win in my book!
