Quick Fettuccine Alfredo

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/quick_fettuccine_alfredo.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2014

In this healthy fettuccine Alfredo recipe, the sauce for this classic pasta dish gets a makeover, using yogurt. Although we like to toss this creamy pasta sauce with fettuccine, any whole-wheat pasta can be used.
