Skinny Mini Fettuccine

(3 Votes)
15 Min

Looking for a lighter version off traditional Fettuccine Alfredo? Well you've found it with our Skinny Mini Fettuccine. Packing lots of creamy-rich flavor, this one just might pleasantly surprise you.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon buttery spread
  • 1 (6-ounce) package low-fat processed cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces spinach fettuccine
What To Do:
  1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine all ingredients except fettuccine. Whisk until cheese is melted and sauce has thickened.
  2. Meanwhile, cook fettuccine according to package directions; drain and toss with sauce. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Note: For the low-fat processed cheese, our Test Kitchen used 8 wedges of Laughing Cow. However, any brands are fine.

A tasty and light broccoli side is a great go-along with this delectable pasta dish. And we like to start off with a salad, so why not try our healthy Wilted Spinach Salad?

This is a very quick, easy and good recipe. We loved it! I added some leftover rotisserie chicken from the grocer and a bit of steamed broccoli and it was fit for company. Highly recommend it.

Your recipes are indeed well thought out. I've tried many and thank you for the super ideas. Wonderful new tastes and ideas. Flora G. Canada

Hey everyone, I am not a nutritionist, but I often figure out the calorie information myself for various recipes. With my calculations based upon Velveeta 2% cheese, skim milk, regular pasta (with 210 calories per 2 oz serving) and the remaining ingredients, the calorie count is 715 per serving if you follow the 2 serving suggestion. However, 4oz of pasta is well above the recommended daily amount of pasta (serving size is actually 2 ounces). If you make four servings out of this dish, the calories would be 357.5. I hope this helps someone!

Also, if you use 8 laughing cow wedges as suggested above, the calorie count it 665 for 2 servings, 332 for 4 servings.

This sounds so good - always have those ingredients on hand. Calories, please?

I, too, would like the nutritional value, as well as, the calorie count. It sounds, "OOH SO GOOD", just need the rest of the story.

You say it is low calorie, but what are the numbers?

I would like Nutrition Information on these Skinny recipes. Skinny Soup had the information.

yes I agree. Caloric count is very useful and needed in this world of weight watching.
