  1. This looks like a wonderful and easy dish to make. I noticed you stated that you measure your pasta uncooked. How much uncooked pasta is needed to make the two cups cooked? Thank you. 🙂

      Hi Nancy.. I measured 2 cups of uncooked pasta ..its about the same once its cooked.. don’t worry about how much it is once its cooked, just measure out 2 cups and cook it 🙂

      I’ve changed the wording a bit in the recipe so its not as confusing 😉 Hope you enjoy

        You say 6 servings, but is it 1cup a piece or what? So much easier is you know a measurement.

        • Drizzle Reply

          Hi, I wouldn’t say it’s easier, I use a 9×13 casserole dish and get 6 servings out of it, I think most can judge 6 equal servings..

  2. What does 8pp per serving mean? I’m assuming it has something to do with Weight Watchers, but how does that translate to calories/fat?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi.. pp stands for points plus, yes a weight watchers term.. As of yet I have not included nutritional info on my recipes, being that they are all WW recipes I have just focused on points..I know it’s something I need to do in the future but it is very time consuming and I have just been focusing on points while trying to maintain the blog and my busy life 😉

      • there are apps to do nutritional counts. I have used them but never research how true they are though.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, you could half it but in a 8×8 it is not really half.. so it might just be a little thinner than usual if that makes sense lol 😉

  3. You say lean ground beef do you know it its 93/7 or 85/15 beef ?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi there, I think the beef I buy is a 92/8, hope that helps..

    OK Drizzle~ My husband and I give this recipe four hands up. Not just thumbs, the whole hand. It is so good, I portioned it and I am going to have to freeze a portion for myself or my husband may it all the left overs. Definitely a keeper. Thanks and keep ’em comin’.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Ha!! I will take four hands up!! 🙂 So glad you both enjoy it, and it makes great leftovers.. tell hubby hands off lol..

  5. I am trying this tonight! So excited!
    Your great website and variety of WW recipes makes me excited to stick to the program 🙂
    Also can’t wait to try the greek yogurt muffins!:)

    I LOVE this recipe. If I wanted to take this recipe and make it into a lettuce wrap, do you know what the points are for the recipe, minus the pasta? Thank you! LOVE your recipes 🙂

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Allison, glad your enjoying the recipe, sorry no I am not too sure, I only figured it out with the pasta

    If you subbed 0-pt turkey, any idea how that might change the points? Thanks!

    • Drizzle Reply

      I can tell you there is 15SP in the pound of ground beef, so maybe do the math from there
