"This Chicken Alfredo recipe seriously tastes just like the stuff you’d get in the restaurant except it's half the calories!" It may seem too good to be true, but food blogger, Krista from Joyful Healthy Eats, means it when it comes to her Skinny Chicken Alfredo. 
She knew it was a winner when her 2-year-old son, deep in a phase of avoiding any and all vegetables, reluctantly tried this pasta dish only to find he loved it! Her trick was in deceptively replacing traditional ingredients with vegetable-based ingredients, like using spinach pasta and cauliflower Alfredo sauce
