Here Are Your Ingredients:
Recipe adapted from Eat Yourself Skinny

1 package Pasta Zero - fettuccine
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 gloves of garlic, minced
2 cups of skim milk
1 cup of chicken broth
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup grated low-fat Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mushrooms
1 cup broccoli
2 cups chicken breasts (see below to see what option is best for you)
garlic salt  


Cook pasta as directed on package. After noodles are cooked drain and mix with one tablespoon of olive oil with noodles so they don't stick together. In a small saucepan, stir together milk, chicken broth, 3 Tbsp. flour, salt and pepper over medium heat until smooth and thick.  Stir into garlic.  Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thick.  Stir in with Parmesan cheese.  Cover and let sit for a few minutes so that the sauce thickens up even more.  In the mean time with a small sauce pan add 1 tablespoon olive oil and mushrooms. Cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes or until browned a slightly tender (or however you prefer your mushrooms) add garlic salt to taste. Steam broccoli in microwave by adding in microwave safe bowl with 1/4 cup water. Cook on high for 3 minutes. Pour fettuccine noodles on plate adding 1/2 cup chicken breast now garnish with steamed broccoli and browned mushrooms. 

Chicken: For quicker dinner buy rotisserie chicken from grocery store. You could also BBQ chicken breasts. If you like Cajun I recommend trying my Cajun Pork Chop's but instead of using pork chops use chicken. The only thing you need to do differently is cook chicken longer - cook for 15 minutes. Now you can have Skinny Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo! YUMMY!
