Submitted by: CAROLANNRX

Introduction

This Hoppin' John recipe was adapted from several different ones I found in cook books and on the internet.
Gimme Lean Sausage is fat free and tastes amazing. Using Shiratki noodles instead of rice decreases the calorie count even further and provides huge filling portions.
