Guilt Free Alfredo (6 WW Points)

After a long summer, I'm back at work and meal planning is key! Tonight I made linguini alfredo and this recipe is definitely a keeper!

1.25 cup chicken broth
3 tbsps. unbleached flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 c. fat free plain yogurt
8 ounces linguini, cooked (I used the whole wheat kind)
1/4 c. parmesan cheese

In a saucepan, combine broth, flour, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Over medium heat, cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add yogurt. Fold in cooked linguini and parmesan cheese.
