      This is from WeightWatchers.com. 8 PointsPlus per serving. WW says, "Like a burrito in a bowl, this dish is great for parties. Serve a big salad on the side.... NOTES: Leftover brown rice works well in this dish. Or save time by picking some up at your local Chinese restaurant." We had this for dinner last night and it's definitely a crowd pleaser! Thanks for saving me the effort of posting this recipe, IAteMyGluestick!
