Kraft kitchens tips

Flavour Boost
Garlic lovers can add 1/8 tsp. garlic powder.
Makeover Savings
With butter and heavy cream, Alfredo sauce can pack a lot of calories. Instead, our lighter version uses a combination of Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread, chicken broth and flour and also reduces the amount of grated Parmesan. These changes will save you 300 calories and 34 g of total fat per serving!
