Get ready to “wow” your family and friends with this out of this world dish! No one will ever guess it’s low in calories. I’m already thinking this recipe will be on my top 10 favorites for 2012. My husband and I ended up eating it 3 days in a row. I made it skinny by using whole grain lasagna noodles, delicious store bought light Alfredo sauce and reduced-fat cheese. The skinny for one serving is 290 calories, 9.5 grams of fat and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Made with regular Alfredo sauce and cheese each serving has 416 calories and 20 grams of fat. Just serve with a simple Caesar salad. I’ve included a quick recipe under Serving Tips below. I hope you love this dish as much as I do…

    Shopping Tip
    Use Buitoni Light Alfredo Sauce, if possible. It comes in a 10 ounce container and can be found in most supermarkets in the refrigerator section where fresh pasta and sauces are displayed. If you can’t find it, there are several brands of jarred light Alfredo sauce in the pasta aisle. They come in a larger, 15 ounce jar, so you’ll need to buy 2 and save the extra for another use.
