Self-Crust Pumpkin Pie
Very Good 4.7/5

This delicious pie makes it's own "crust" while baking. My mother-in-law gave me the recipe.

1/8 of pie = 2 WW points
1/8 of pie = 1/2 vegetable serving

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

Crockpot Creamy Italian [Beach] Wedding Soup
Incredible! 5.0/5
(6 ratings)

It's a beach wedding because of the pasta shells.

(cute?)

I've always had a taste bud defect of only liking creamy soups. Thankfully, fat free half & half adds creaminess just as well as heavy cream.

Very Good 4.5/5
(181 ratings)

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!
