Bite it!
HG's Chicken 'Bella Fettuccine Girlfredo

Alfredo Trade-O!
Pasta with cream sauce is SO GOOD, and perfectly seasoned chicken plus veggies make it EXTRA amazing! This no-guilt take on a Ruby T. dish ROCKS...

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1 bag House Foods Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
4 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 tsp. salt-free seasoning mix (like Mrs. Dash Original)
3/4 cup sliced brown mushrooms
1/3 cup frozen peas
2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 tsp. light sour cream
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
Dash each salt and black pepper
Optional seasonings: additional salt and black pepper

Use a strainer to rinse and drain noodles. Thoroughly pat dry. Roughly cut noodles.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt-free seasoning. Add chicken and mushrooms to the skillet. Cook and stir for 4 minutes. Add peas and cook and stir for about 2 minutes, until chicken is cooked through, mushrooms have softened, and peas are hot.

Transfer chicken and veggies to a medium bowl, and cover to keep warm.

Remove skillet from heat. Clean, if needed. Re-spray and bring to medium heat. Add noodles and remaining ingredients, breaking the cheese wedge into pieces. Cook and stir until cheese has melted, mixed with sour cream, and coated noodles, 2 - 3 minutes.

Add chicken and veggies back to the skillet. Mix well, and serve it up!

Fight it!
Ruby Tuesday's Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo

'Fredo, You Broke My Heart...
Ruby Tuesday is one of those homey American restaurants with lots of comfort-food options. And while it can be easy to get lost in the menu, don't get completely flustered and choose this creamy pasta dish! BAD IDEA -- especially since there are a lot of really smart picks available. As comforting as this cream-sauced linguini with chicken, mushrooms, and peas might sound, the numbers that accompany it are more than a little unsettling. Almost 60 grams of fat? EEEK. More than 1,100 calories? ACK. And then there's the 3,000+ milligrams of sodium. YIKES!!! Let our swap soothe your anxiety. It's not only a great light option that's packed with lean protein and veggies, it's also REALLY delicious. Now THAT's comforting...
