Makeover - How We Did It

We replaced the butter and milk used in the traditional recipe with chicken broth, flour and PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese. In addition, we decreased the amount of Parmesan cheese. These changes will save you 310 calories and 21g of fat per serving when compared to that of the traditional recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The recipe itself is so easy and delicious, I give it five stars easily! The recipe itself is so easy and delicious, I give it five stars easily! But the portion size? That's a joke. I am a small woman (5"2" and 104 pounds) and the serving size on this meal of 1 cup is ridiculous. It's just a way to get the calorie count under 300 to call this a light meal, but really, unless its a side dish (and 300 calories for a side dish is way too much!) you and your guests will definitely eat two to three times that amount just to have a decent sized meal. So just be aware that the calorie count on this only LOOKS low, but when you eat a regular portion, that number will go way up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I normally stay away from Alfredo any time we go out to eat, so I was really pleased to see this... I normally stay away from Alfredo any time we go out to eat, so I was really pleased to see this "better for you" version that I could make at home. My husband and I try to eat as healthy as we can, so you can't beat 300 calories. I used whole wheat pasta though because that is the only thing we eat pasta wise. The only problem I had with this recipe was that it felt like it was missing something. I haven't quite figured out what yet though. Next time I will make it with some grilled chicken and see if that makes a difference. Still a very good recipe though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good. Very good. I used Philadelphia Garlic 'n Herb cream cheese spread instead of using reg spread and adding garlic as suggested. I also added dry parsley to the sauce before adding to noodles. To make it stretch, I added 1/2 lb diced, cooked chicken breasts. My husband really liked it. Just last week he ordered this at a popular Italian chain restaurant in St. Louis & was less than impressed. I decided to make this to make it up to him. He was impressed. Will def make again. One of those comfort foods that will easily be craved. Thanks, Kraft! A cook in StL, MO

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought this recipe was pretty good considering it is a 'lowfat' version of one of my favorites. I thought this recipe was pretty good considering it is a 'lowfat' version of one of my favorites. It was so easy to make and had a nice, creamy consistency. I added turkey bacon pieces for more of a 'carbonara' sauce and that added a lot of flavor that may have been lacking had I left it plain. After reading other reviews, I will try adding garlic and broccolli next time ~ I will for sure be making this again, especially when I am limited on time or am looking for some comfort food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first time I made this recipe, it was a little bland so the second time I added roasted garlic. The first time I made this recipe, it was a little bland so the second time I added roasted garlic. I also use 2 T. of the reduced fat Kraft parmesan cheese and 2 T. of the regular parm cheese, which allows me to add some extra cheese without increasing the saturated fat. I most recently added sun-dried tomatoes (in 100% olive oil) and fresh mushrooms. It was excellent!! I'm addicted to pasta so I'm glad to finally find a healthy "cream" sauce.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a very good recipe. This was a very good recipe. My husband does not like to eat pasta without meat, so I added some cajun chicken. It gave it a nice bite! I also used 1/4 tsp Garlic Garlic seasoning from Tastefully Simple instead of the garlic powder suggested and fresh cracked pepper to taste. My hubby loves fettucine alfredo and since it's usually a super fatty recipe I don't make it, but I'll be making this one again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I thought this was terrible. I thought this was terrible. I think I made a couple of mistakes (like for one I didn't have nutmeg so I added cinnamon - and I think a bit too much cuz you could taste it in the sauce). It didn't taste or look anything like an alfredo. I ended up throwing away all the sauce and making a garlic & oil sauce instead. I make a homemade alfredo sauce anyway so I think I'll just stick to that from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an easy recipe to make. What an easy recipe to make. The only change I would recommend is add a little garlic powder to your taste and a little salt. Other than that it is perfect. My husband thinks dinner without meat is absurd, so I browned up some ground chicken breast and added it when I mixed the sauce. It made him happy and it was delicious. He said I had to definately make that again and again and again.... :)
