My hubby, Joe, loves pasta with alfredo sauce. I have made it a few times for him over the years, but with all the butter and cream, I never felt good about serving it. I just posted a great recipe for a pasta dish with whole wheat pasta, a lower-fat cream sauce, broccoli, and chicken breasts. We had it this week and it was a huge hit. You could easily make it vegetarian by leaving out the chicken. Or trade the chicken for some shrimp...mmmmm...that sounds good! The best news? It was ready in about 30 minutes. I hope you enjoy Better for you: Penne with Cream Sauce!
Laid off from an accounting job in March 2009 after the birth of my third son, I was forced to take a long look at our budget. During my first year as a stay-at-home mom I found my passion: to help others with budgeting, saving money, organizing the family, and menu planning. Please join me on my journey!
