MOMTHERESA - I would recommend using the recipe calculator on SparkRecipes to calculate that. No need to be a mathematician as it does all the calculations for you - just enter the ingredients and the number of servings and it will give you the new nutritional values for you.

I have a question along the same topic... I have a favorite old recipe (not on SP) that I have made a modification to. I know it has significantly less calories, fat and sodium because I omit the 1 & 1/2 pounds of 90% lean ground beef and use 12oz of Boca Crumbles instead. I am not a mathmetician by any means and cannot figure out how to modify the nutrition facts. Is there an easy way to figure this out?... I feel lame for even asking.

Original recipe nutrition facts: 1 serving equals 369 calories, 15 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 86 mg cholesterol, 837 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 7 g fiber, 32 g protein.

It might change the nutrition values slightly, but you can click on the button to the right side of the recipe page to create a recipe makeover and make the changes that you want. Once you do that you can save it and use the new info using the changes you made.
