Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

Add garlic; saute 1 minute. Stir in flour. Gradually add milk, stirring
with a wire whisk until blended; cook 8 minutes or until thickened and
bubbly, stirring constantly. Stir in cream cheese, cook 2 minutes. Add
Parmesan cheese, stirring constantly until it melts. Pour over hot cooked
fettuccine; toss well to coat. Sprinkle with parsley and pepper. Serves

This is not a completely low fat version but it is definitely MUCH LOWER
than regular. And it is delicious! Cooking Light listed it as having 345
calories, 9.7 grams fat, CFF 25% per serving.

My family likes a lot of sauce so I doubled the sauce ingredients. That
would affect the calorie/fat count but I used less Parmesan (than the
original) so that would affect it also. Perhaps it balances out. :)
Original measurements are below.

Original Measurements:

Butter 1 T. Garlic 2 cloves Flour 1 T. Milk 1-1/3 C Cream Cheese 2 T.
Parmesan 1-1/4 C.(includes 1/4 cup to be sprinkled on top before serving,
I omitted this) fettuccini - same parsley - same
