Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo Fake-Out!

I got this idea from Hungry Girl -- LOVE HER -- but tweaked it a bit.... It's delish, super low calorie, and full of protein!!  I love these tofu noodles because they are low in calories & carbs, and give you the taste and feeling of eating noodles but not the sluggish feeling you get after eating normal (even whole wheat) pasta.  I paired mine with a salad and lunch is a done deal! 

1 package house foods shiratake tofu noodles (i used spaghetti noodles, but they have other styles you can use)
1 wedge light swiss cheese (like laughing cow - I used the aldi brand though)
1tbsp plain greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
dash parmesan cheese
2oz chicken (skinless, boneless - already cooked - diced)

Drain, rinse, and pat dry noodles.  Heat over medium heat in skillet.  Add in cheese & greek yogurt.  Cook until heated through and blended well.  (Break the cheese into pieces for easier blending).  Add in chicken.  When done, top with parmesan cheese, s&p.  Enjoy!!
