Skinny Alfredo Sauce (makes 2½ dl [1 cup])
 1½ dl (2/3 cup) plain Greek yogurt
 3/4 dl (1/3 cup) part-skim ricotta cheese
 1½ tbsp parmesan cheese
 1 tbsp light cream cheese
 1½ tsp olive oil
 ½ shallot, chopped
 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
 basil, oregano, salt, pepper
Place all items in a food processor and blend until smooth. Test-taste and add any additional spices you find necessary.

Chicken Sausage and Kale Pasta (with skinny alfredo sauce and onions) [serves 4-5]
 1 box whole grain or whole wheat pasta
 1-2 tbsp olive oil
 ½ white onion, sliced
 2½ links chicken sausage, quartered
 6-7 dl (2½-3 cups) kale, rinsed and chopped
 2½ dl (1 cup) skinny alfredo sauce ↑
Cook pasta according to box directions. While pasta is cooking, add olive oil to a large frying pan. Add sliced onions and cook for about 10 minutes over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally (make sure you’re keeping an eye on the pasta, too). When onions have softened, add chicken sausage. Continue to cook for 8-10 minutes. Add chopped kale to frying pan and cover with a lid. Sauté for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve chicken sausage, onions, and kale over pasta and finish off with skinny alfredo sauce. Add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, if desired.
