To get the brick oven flavor with pizza, I put it on my gas grill. It's awesome!

My family loves good Italian food. Here's a recipe that I used a lot last year when my daughter craved my old Alfredo, but I didn't want the calories. I had kind of forgotten about it. I'm going to post it here so I don't lose it again.

Fettuccine Alfredo

8 oz. whole wheat fettuccine
1 1/4 c. fat-free chicken broth
4 tsp. flour
1/3 c. light cream cheese spread
3 T. grated Parmesan
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 T. chopped fresh parsley

Cook pasta as per pkg. directions. Combine broth and flour in med. saucepan. Stir in cream cheese spread, 2 T. Parmesan, nutmeg and pepper. Cook 2 minutes stirring constantly until mixture bubbles and thickens. Toss pasta with sauce. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and parsley.
