    sounds good, but too high in carbohydrates, sodium, cholesterol, etc. I guess that's why it sounds good. - 3/5/09

    You can always sub non-salt added tomato sauce in for regular sauce - no additional salt was used in this recipe. Also, 56mg per serving of cholesterol is not bad compared to consuming whole eggs! Carbs aren't a problem unless you're doing a low-carb diet, which is not good for me personally.
