Reviews for Low-Fat Fettuccine
"I made this using cooked chicken instead of ham. I also doubled the sauce. It isn't very creamy but it has good flavorand is easy to make."
"I MADE THIS FOR LUNCH. I DIDN'T PUT IN THE TOMATOES BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE ANY BUT I DID PUT IN SOME ASPARAGUS. I ALSO USED NEUFACHATEL CHEESE FOR THE CREAM CHEESE. AND I JUST USED A SMALL CAN OF MUSHROOMS. I DIDN'T PUT THE HAM IN THIS TIME BUT I WILL DO THAT NEXT TIME. WE THOUGHT IT WAS DELICIOUS. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A LOWER FAT RECIPE FOR FETTUCCINI AND THIS IS THE ONE. THANKS"
