Pilates and Pasta

After an intense work out of Pilates legs and spin class, my roommate Jenn and I were ready for a hearty, but healthy dinner. We’ve been craving pasta lately -between planning our trip to Italy and reading the Italian Food Network Magzine issue- pasta was a must. Jenn found a great Bethenny Frankel (Real Housewives NYC) recipe: Low Fat Creamy Mushroom Pasta. With a few changes of our own, we made this simple but DELICIOUS dinner in less than 15 minutes!

We cut even more calories by using fat-free sour cream and “I can’t believe it’s not butter”. Sometimes the lack of fat makes of difference, but not in this pasta, the sauce was still just as thick and creamy as if we had used whole milk. We also cut out the truffle oil (one bottle was $14, I think I’ll pass…). We topped the dish with dried parsley instead of fresh and it was still scrumptious!

A great work out, good dinner, and relaxing evening made this a delightful experience that needs repeating!
