This is not a completely low fat version but it is definitely MUCH LOWER than regular. And it is delicious! Cooking Light listed it as having 345 calories, 9.7 grams fat, CFF 25% per serving.
 
My family likes a lot of sauce so I doubled the sauce ingredients. That would affect the calorie/fat count but I used less Parmesan (than the original) so that would affect it also. Perhaps it balances out. :) Original measurements are below.
 
Original Measurements:
 
Butter 1 T. Garlic 2 cloves Flour 1 T. Milk 1-1/3 C Cream Cheese 2 T. Parmesan 1-1/4 C.(includes 1/4 cup to be sprinkled on top before serving, I omitted this) fettuccini - same parsley - same
