READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Maxxr

I made this for years and then lost it. Have searched everywhere including online with no luck. Went to Miami and found the recipe in an old cookbook in the library there, eureka! Am posting this so I know where to find it, being the scatterbrain I am. It's delicious diet food.

Well, this couldn't have been any easier and it was wonderfully satisfying - very flavorful. I made the recipe exactly as written (well, I did substitute high fiber pasta). When you do that, the whole recipe is only 9 points! (One thing I always hate about WW recipes is when things like pasta are expressed as "cooked cups". 2 oz. dry = 1 cup cooked).
