I'm pretty sure this is Ph1. I don't know what you would use it for, but it's quite tasty, and once you get to Ph2, you can use it on ww pasta.

1/2 cup skim milk
3 Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Light wedges
1/2 T. parmesan cheese
1/2 T. Molly McButter
1 pinch garlic

Throw everything in a small sauce pan. Stir until melted and creamy, about 10minutes.

This makes 1-2 servings, depending on how much you like. It's also 2-4 WW points, if you're doing WW. Enjoy!

What is Molly McButter? DH loves alfredo sauce, and I think it would be good on veggies, chicken, or fish.

Molly McButter is a butter flavored seasoning, usually used to sprinkle on popcorn. It's in the seasoning isle. The sauce is pretty darn good, so it's worth trying!

I'm glad your Man Chicken enjoyed! I haven't made it for Terry yet.... hogged it all for myself. It was wonderful over whole wheat macaroni. (I didn't have any whole wheat fettuccini.) The thing I liked most about it was that it was all stuff I had in the fridge and pantry. I didn't have to go buy anything special to make it.

Here's a healthy alternative...lots of protein with little fat and very yummy!



1 1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
3/4 cup evaporated skim milk
3/4 cup low fat ricotta cheese
3/4 cup low fat Monterey Jack Cheese; shredded
3/4 cup parmesan cheese; grated
3 teaspoon garlic; minced



In blender or food processor, combine cottage cheese, milk, ricotta; puree. Transfer to 10 in skillet; add the Monterey Jack, Parmesan and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheeses are melted and the sauce is smooth.

This was DELISH over cauliflower! I even used the rest of it to put over my chicken... the boyfriend (non-sbder) just poured it over everything on his plate :p

I'm going to make chicken and broccoli with this, minus the noodles for phase I, yum! :D

Tried this tonight over Spaghetti squash. It was pretty good. A little on the thick side.

I just made Weezle's sauce and was quite surprised by how much it thickened up. It definitely seems like alfredo sauce to me. I doubled the recipe and it easily fed my 3 kids plus DH and myself with some leftovers. :) I used 3 wedges of Garlic and Herb Light and 3 wedges of Swiss Light. Thank you, Weezle. Oh...my kids gobbled theirs up on whole grain pasta and I am about to have mine on steamed zucchini ribbons. :) YUM!

I think I'll try this next week w/ some whole wheat spiral noodles, chicken, and broccoli. Mmmmmm, yummy!!! I like the garlic and herb laughing cow, though, so I'll probably use it instead.

Made this tonight and it was YUMMY!!! I doubled the recipe and served it over wheat whole grain spiral pasta w/ chicken and steamed broccoli. The chicken was pan sauteed in olive oil and lemon juice and seasoned w/ lemon pepper, garlic powder, and basil.
