Chicken Alfredo Baked Penne – 6 Freestyle Points

Pasta is my weakness. I love it! That’s one of the reasons I love Weight Watchers…I can still eat it! 

This meal is perfect for those busy nights during the week. It was about 30 minutes total time, including baking.

Plus it’s only 6 points for pasta and melted cheese! That’s pretty awesome!

I did something I don’t usually do….I bought premade alfredo sauce.

I also bought a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. The only thing I had to do was cook the noodles.

I am all about trying to make life easier. If that means using a rotisserie chicken instead of baking my own chicken breast, I’m okay with that.

I’m still making my family dinner. As long as I know the point value to my meal I am happy. I have yet to have anyone in my family question if I cooked the chicken myself, or bought it.

Plus my cat and dog LOVE getting a few pieces of chicken “dropped” for them.

I always go to the grocery store after work to pick up my rotisserie chicken. I have had it happen that they are out of rotisserie chickens. It is crushing!!

But I put on my big girl pants and head to the raw chicken. I may mumble a few bad words under my breath as I walk over, but I usually get over it pretty quick.
