Beef taco pasta with cheese and other taco ingredients is the Weight Watchers version of a substantial and filling meal.
Ground beef should be cooked in a pan and any excess fat should be drained. Replacing the ground meat, 3/4 cup water, taco seasoning, salsa, and cheese are added to the pan. Toss the noodles in after you’ve given the mixture a good stir.

The combination of bacon, ranch, and cheddar in this dish is one of my all-time favorites.

- To serve, pour one cup of broth into each bowl, then spoon half of the pasta/chickpea combination on top. If you’d like, sprinkle an extra 1 1/2 tablespoons of shredded cheese on top (I like.)

The combination of sausage, greens, and pasta is a time-honored favorite, but nobody will ever suspect that this dish is low in Points®, owing to the abundance of vegetables, and also takes very little time to prepare. Parmigiano-reggiano should be added at the end, and the red pepper flakes should be used so that there is only a sense of heat.
Thin Noodles Simple and healthy Alfredo sauce that can be made in under 20 minutes!
While Alfredo sauce is notoriously difficult to lighten up, I think this recipe comes very close. Milk and low-fat cream cheese are substituted for the cream. Another essential component of Alfredo sauce is grated Parmesan cheese. That can’t be replaced.
