Skinny Chicken and Brocoli Alfredo Fettuccine

Let's be honest who does not love Alfredo... the creamy rich texture served over pasta.  I love Alfredo especially homemade Alfredo, but I know it is not good for you AT ALL.   I did some calculations and this whole recipe on weight watchers comes out to be about 7 points per serving.  Regular Alfredo sauce JUST THE SAUCE is about 10 points.  Not only is this recipe significantly better for you the taste was absolutely delicious.  My roommate is a huge Alfredo fan, and she loved this!  She asked to make it again in the near future.

Serving size- 4 cups
Cook time- 30 minutes
Things I would do differently- I would not change anything
