THANKS! I'll try this with leftover chicken breast and some mushrooms - I have a half breast I was wondering what to do with !

You are NOT a dork! We all make mistakes when we type :) Thanks for the correction, and I look forward to making it. BTW I tried the Shirataki noodles-they are wonderful!! They do need to be rinsed and microwaved first, as they have a "fishy" odor. But the rinsing and cooking takes that away!

I can't remember if I've posted this already or not. I've started to make a list of the recipes I post, so I don't double post. I got this from RunnersWorld.com. It is DELISH! I've made it twice this summer, and it is great for the night before a long run.
Ingredients 8 oz whole wheat fettuccine 1 Tablespoon butter 3 garlic cloves, minced 12 teaspoons cornstarch Pinch of ground nutmeg 3/4 cup low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth 3/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese 3/4 cup 5% Greek Yogurt Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Directions 1.Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add fettuccine; cook according to package directions 2.While pasta cooks, melt butter in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook two minutes 3.Combine cornstarch and nutmeg into a small bowl; whisk in chicken broth until smooth. Pour into sauté pan, raise the heat, and bring sauce to a simmer, whisking occasionally. Whisk in 1/2 cup of the cheese until melted. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in yogurt until smooth 4.Toss fettuccine with Alfredo sauce. Season with salt and pepper 5.Top pasta with remaining cheese.
Makes 4 servings, at 339 calories per serving.
If you would like, you can add a can or chicken breast (yes, chicken, not tuna) to the sauce prior to mixing in the pasta. This makes Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. ;-)
