Low Fat Pasta Primavera

When I am cutting back on calories and working hard to eat healthier one of the harder things for me to give up is the rich and creamy pasta dishes I love so much.  This easy Low-Fat Pasta Primavera is a simple and classic flavor that most won’t believe is truly low in fat, calories and reasonably figured at only 5 Weight Watchers Points per serving.

Low Fat Pasta Primavera has only 5 Weight Watchers Points per serving!

Although it is a bit heavier than some meals you might partake when you are counting calories, it is still a light fare compared to its traditional counterpart.  You will notice the lack of cream, bacon and heavy cheeses in this sauce for pasta primavera, but you will still have the creamy rich flavor expected with some new vegetable combinations that please the eye and the palate.
