    mandalee65's Note:

    I adapted this from a Light & Tasty cookbook. It was so delicious that I had to put it in the fridge before it was cool just to stop myself from eating it all! For WWers, this works to 6 points per serving. I use Ragu No Sugar Added Tomato & Basil sauce to keep the calorie/fat content as low as possible.

      This seems like a great recipe, but I'm not sure I would label it "Weight Watchers Friendly". According to the nutritional information provided, this would be 12.6 "regular" points (not PointsPlus). And 21.4 g of fat per serving (33% of your daily value!) is pretty high. I'm sure this would be great if you weren't trying to watch your waistline!

      I went into this recipe knowing I was going to have a lot and I'm happy about that as I can freeze half and use the other for dinner. Very simple to prepare. Only change I made was to sub in ricotta cheese in place of the cottage cheese as a personal preference. Loved the lightness of this dish compared to a lasagna for a nice change of pace. Made for Help a Naked Recipe in the Photo Forum.

      Great recipe. Really a lot of food for the points and reheats very well. Almost better the second day. Will be making on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing!
