Potato Leek Soup -- 4 Smart Points

If you don't have leeks, use finely diced onion.  This was made using the full fat version of Classico Alfredo sauce, you can shave 7 Smart Points off the recipe if you use Classico Light Alfredo sauce and even more points if you choose to use a substitute for the real butter in my recipe.

Smart Points 4 per cup
Makes 8 cups

¼ cup butter
2 leeks, cut into ½” slices
¼ cup finely chopped carrot
5 medium potatoes, cubed  (1 lb. raw potatoes = 13 oz. cooked or 2 cups finely diced)
4 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
1 jar Classico Alfredo sauce
2 t. chopped chives

Melt butter in large saucepan, cook leeks and carrots about 5 minutes.

Add 4 cups of water, potatoes and  bouillon granules.  Cover, reduce heat and
Cook for about 25 minutes.

Stir in Alfredo sauce and simmer for another 5 minutes or until hot.  Top with
chopped chives to serve.
**to speed up cooking time, cube potatoes and cook in microwave without water while doing other prep work.  This cuts the cooking time down to about 10 minutes.**

Butter                          12
Alfredo Sauce             14
Potatoes                        6
Total                           32
