    I have to write another comment…made this again tonight holy sh*t!!! So good I can’t even believe it’s healthy!! I altered the recipe by using light laughing cow cheese (66g) instead of fat free cream cheese and half the parmensan cheese. Totally hit the spot!!

      Haha! I love that Jessica. Thanks so much for writing another comment. This is a staple for me too!

    I am a mom of two young picky eaters. It’s been hard for me to make meals that fit my macros and please the kids at the same time. This recipe was a big hit! The noodles smelled funky when cooking but tasted great. Thank you and keep up the great work on the dinner creations!!!
