    I tried this recipe out this evening and it was a huge hit! I added squash to it, for some bulk and extra fiber. I love a hearty meal that doesn’t cost me a ton of smart points!! Plus, my fiance gave it two thumbs up! This one will certainly be made again soon.

      Hi Heather, PC Blue menu is a Canadian brand, I did post the SP value for the serving size so you could compare it with another brand πŸ™‚

    This sounds really good! Love anything Italian! One question, though. What is the difference between pasta sauce and pizza sauce? I’m not familiar with pasta sauce.

      HI Kathy, pasta sauce comes in the bigger jars or cans for spaghetti , pizza sauce is usually sold in smaller cans and is meant for making your own pizza’s, the taste is different, to me anyway

    This recipe is right up my alley. I have one question…Does 85 grams mean 2 cups (dry)?

      85g is 1 cup dry

    Did you use regular pepperoni or turkey? If you used regular, how many points would it be if you used turkey? Or do you not recommend that? Thanks.

      Hi I use reg pepperoni, I don’t like turkey so I am sorry but unsure of the points , as long as you like turkey I am sure it will work out fine

    What kind of pasta sauce did you use in this recipe?

      I usually use a PC blue menu pasta sauce for my recipes, it is a Canadian brand and reduced fat but other brands should carry something similar

    This might be a dumb question, but if I add veggies (like green pepper, onion, mushrooms), should I cook them first?

      You don’t have to but you could if you prefer them to me more of a sauteed veggie

    This was absolutely AMAZING – my husband loved it and it was so easy to make. It will absolutely be a staple – he asked if we could have it every week! I only had an 8×8 pan, but I assume that 7oz is 7oz whether it comes out of a 9×13 pan or an 8×8 pan. I weighed it out, so hoping it was still only 7 SP! πŸ™‚

    Do you think I would be able to put everything together but not cook it until the next day?

      I think if you leave it in the fridge, yes it should be ok

    This only filled half the pan ? Looks like enough for 4, which is fine for us. Looks delicious

      Hi Sara, I used a 9×13 dish and it is not filled to the top

    How do you figure the serving size?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle October 10, 2018 at 2:30 pm

      Hi Julie, I do have it listed as about 7oz, I divided into 6 servings and weighed them to determine the average was 7oz per serving (step 8 lists the serving size)
