Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo

Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo:  healthified fall comfort food.

Here’s a nice recipe to work off of, from (and see a few posts of mine, listed below, for more healthy pasta dinner ideas)

Make this dish as healthified as you choose- whole wheat pasta, low fat cheese and low fat milk.  Note: I skipped the butter and flour part of the recipe and went straight to sautéing the garlic in olive oil; I used low fat cream cheese (about 3 tablespoons) in place of goat cheese; and dumped tons of cinnamon and red pepper flakes in…none of this “pinch” business.
