  1. Made this for supper tonight. I added lean ground beef and it brought my points up quite a bit. But was still very delicious!! Thank you!!

  2. 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.

    where do you buy the blue menu pasta? I looked online and I cant find it in any stores around me ;( (Springfield, IL)

      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™‚

  4. Made this tonight and we ALL loved it!! Big hit with the family too! Thanks so much Kate!

  5. Easy to make. Tastes amazing. Perfect dinner recipe that all ages in my family from 2 to 54yrs loved. Thanks for another fabulous recipe and keeping us deliciously on track ????

      HI Lisa, aww thanks for your sweet words, so glad everyone enjoyed it πŸ™‚

  6. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

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

  8. 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.

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

    • Drizzle Reply

      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

  9. So yummy!! I appreciate that most of your recipes use “regular” ingredients – nothing “weird”! LOL So far my family has enjoyed every recipe of yours I’ve tried! Thank you for your efforts…it has made my WW journey so much easier. =)

      Thank you so much for your sweet words Paula.. Haha I get a lot of people that thank me for not using “weird” ingredients πŸ˜‰ Good luck on your journey!! πŸ™‚

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

    • Drizzle Reply

      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™‚

      Hi Ally, so glad you both enjoyed it, it is such a simple dish to make and so yummy, yup 7oz is 7oz πŸ™‚

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

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

    • Drizzle Reply

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

  14. OMG!!! This was sooooo good! I added sliced mushrooms, onion and bell pepper to the mix without sautΓ©ing first. Outstanding!!!!

  15. I made this tonight for the first time and it was fantastic. My husband loved it and he requested it for dinner next week already. Thank you for the easy and tasty recipe!

      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)
