This was a yummy dinner and I found the recipe in my WW book and it calculated to 3 points. I served it over rice and had some baby carrots on the side.  The rice was 2 points and the carrots were 0 so the total meal was 5 points.   Awesome!!   Please check out Jolie's Beautiful dish Here.  I look forward to Cooking Tuesday night dinners across the miles.  Another Wonderful meal!! :)    Tag you're it Jolie, your turn to pick next week
