5 Weight Watcher points but not core.

Top Review by DuChick

I'm rating this a 4 as written, but can be 5 star and WW core with improvements. I used whole wheat pasta, 14.5 oz. diced tomatoes rather than cherry tomatoes and a small 8 oz. can of tomato sauce with 2 tsp. Italian seasoning rather than pizza sauce. I also chopped up about 6 fresh basil leaves and added black olives and extra garlic. If FF mozzarella is also used, this dish can be WW Core. It's delicious! Thanks Budgiegirl.
