Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo

This recipe came from KraftFoods.com, and it sucked. It is not a good low-fat version of fettuccine alfredo. Maybe to be a tasty alfredo, it must be laden with cream and cheeses. I will not make this recipe again. Ever.

Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo

8 oz. fettuccine, uncooked
1-1/4 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 tsp. flour
1/3 cup PHILADELPHIA Light Cream Cheese Spread
3 Tbsp. KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Cook pasta as directed on package.

Meanwhile, combine broth and flour in medium saucepan. Stir in cream cheese spread, 2 Tbsp. of the Parmesan cheese, the nutmeg and pepper; cook 2 min., stirring constantly with wire whisk until mixture boils and thickens.

Drain pasta. Toss with sauce. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and parsley.

Yield: 4 servings
