THIS IS A RECIPE THAT MY DAUGHTER GOT OUT OF ONE OF HER COOK BOOKS AND GAVE ME THE RECIPE. AND BOY IS IT DELICIOUS AND LOW IN CALORIES.

IT ONLY TAKES 20 MINUTES TO MAKE FROM START TO FINISH AND MAKES FOUR SERVINGS. JUST DOUBLE EVERYTHING FOR MORE SERVINGS..

    Okay, that sounds good (except OOooh the SODIUM!) would use the ground turkey instead simply because of that! I am writing this down for something NEW and DIFFERENT to try - I'm in a rut! THANKS for sharing!!!!
