If you are on South Beach, this can be eaten in Phase 2. Robust in tomato flavor as well as rich and creamy. If you add the meat and/or veggies it also makes for a hearty soup. I also like it because it's so stovetop easy; done in less than 30 minutes. Serve with a tossed salad or veggie.

I really enjoyed this! I used my own marinara sauce, fat free cream cheese & skim milk. I added some pizza seasoning & oregano, and additonal onion & minced garlic. I only added some diced turkey pepperoni & used low fat cheeses-might try some turkey bacon next time!! Went very well with my half grilled cheese sandwich :-). Thanks for sharing!

I am so happy I found you and your library of Low Carb recipes. Everytime I go on a recipezaar binge I gain so much weight. Now, I won't have to take a break from Zaar, I'll just make your recipes for a while. What I especially liked about this recipe was the simplicity. The flavors work really great together - it's hard to tell this is "diet" food. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing this and all your low carb recipes!
