This was a good recipe. I did substitute shredded cheese and ground turkey though.

Wanted to mention the Nutrition values are different in the WW coobook I have. 7 Weight Watchers Points Nutrition Facts: Calories 337; Fat 11.4; Fiber 1.8; Cholesterol 58, Sodium 926; Calcium 202 mg. Iron 3.2 mg Exchanges 2 Starch; 3 Lean Meat


~PS~ In the WW 5 Ingredient 15 Minute cookbook it also calls for1 1/2 cups preshedded part-skim mozzarella cheese instead of the slices. Not a big difference. Either way it was dilicious when I made it from the book. ~Enjoy~


I substituted lean turkey meat for the ground round and added some onions and chopped garlic cloves. Tasted great with even less calories.
