Mmm this is so yummy (and a low fat version)! Cooking Light.

(Serves 4)

1 pack fettuccine
2 slices chopped bacon
1 t minced garlic
1 T all-purpose flour
1 cup low fat milk
2/3 cup grated cheese (preferably Parmesan)

1/2 t black pepper


Prepare fettuccine according to package directions.
While pasta cooks, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon from pan, reserving drippings. Add garlic to drippings in pan; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Sprinkle flour over garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly; cook 2 minutes or until bubbly and slightly thick, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low. Gradually add cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Stir in salt and reserved 1/4 cup cooking liquid. Add hot pasta to pan; toss well to combine. Sprinkle with bacon, parsley, and pepper.
