This dish is so easy to make and is very yummy! Me, my kids and Hubby love it! The only thing is that the ww points are higher than 8, I did my own calculation per item and divided... it came up as 15 points per serving.
This was a good healthy meal. Easy to make. I made exactly as directed and it went together without a hitch. Although, I think that 37 minutes total cooking time is probably too long... prep was less than 10 and maybe 15 minutes for actual cooking time. Thanks for the healthy dish!
