Tofu Recipe - really?

Fettuccine Hungry Chick-fredo

In honor of Fettuccine Alfredo, I scoured the websites of the world to find a dish that is suitably and diet friendly.  How I love Italian food, but I don't love the wide waist it leaves behind.  Hungry Girl's whipped up yet another delicious and completely guilt-free Alfredo dish. A heaping bowl of creamy pasta with chicken has less than one-fifth the amount of calories of Macaroni Grill's version.

Check it out:


1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki noodles, Fettuccine Shape**

1 wedge The Laughing Cow cheese, Light Original Swiss  (I can't say enough good things!)

2 tsp. fat-free sour cream

2 tsp. reduced fat grated parmesan cheese

5 oz. skinless chicken breast; grilled with nonstick spray only
Optional: salt, pepper, and paprika


Drain and rinse noodles well. Dry noodles thoroughly (use paper towels to soak up as much moisture as possible) and use a knife to slice them up a bit. Next, top noodles with both cheeses and fat-free sour cream, then microwave for one minute. Stir and microwave for one additional minute. Slice up chicken breast and add to pasta. For added zing, season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika. Enjoy!
