Weight Watchers Linguine Alfredo Recipe


1 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp flour
1 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup broccoli florets
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 carrot, thinly sliced
4 cups hot cooked linguine


In a medium non-stick saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter. Saute the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Whisk in the flour, then gradually whisk in the milk; cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the cream cheese and Parmesan; cook, stirring until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, place the broccoli, pepper and carrot in a steamer basket; set in saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water. Cover and steam until tender crisp, about 3 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the pasta and steamed vegetables. Add the cheese sauce; toss to coat thoroughly. Serve at once.
