Introduction

7 WW points per serving.

This is really good with steamed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots tossed in. You can also add a diced tomato during the "cook until melted" part of cooking.

  • I'm going to give it a try. Only question is, there is no lemon in the calorie calculation and the juice of two lemons seems alot, approx how much lemon juice did you use? - 6/4/10

  • Very good. I used shrimp, but I didn't need the water there was plenty of sauce. Next time I think I will add more basil. Thanks! - 8/16/09
