  • Sounds good, but how can it only be 88 cal. when pasta is approx. 180 cal per serving? - 10/16/08

    Hello, thanks for the question. While the calorie count for pasta is high, there is only 1 cup of pasta distributed throughout the entire 12 servings of this dish. Thus, 88 calories per serving . :)
