Dinner tonight yummy!

We had this tonight and it is yummy and very easy to put together. I have a 1 year old, 3 year old twins and an 8 year old. My 8 year old eats nothing and he loved this. Dh says it is a keeper! Yummy! You can use lighter spaghetti sauce and wheat noodles to lighten it up more if you want. Sorry I do not have the NI and I am not giving the points, because you really need to figure out points on your own depending on what kind of pasta, cheese and spaghetti sauce you use. I also used a lighter cheese than this recipe called for. I ended up making mine into 10 servings and they were still big! I served it with garlic toast and a big salad. Hope you enjoy.

Hey! I have twins too! My single son is 8, my twin girls are 4. I make a version of this and they all love it! Since I'm new to this whole WW thing, how many points do you try to eat at dinner? I've used the recipe builder to figure some of my recipes with the more points-friendly versions of the ingredients (ie: fat free cheese, whole wheat pasta, low fat "cream of" soups, etc.)and I felt like 7points was a lot? Maybe it's just right? Maybe just watch what other sides I eat with it?

This does look good and I make something similar to this a lot and it's delicious. I use the Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta and the whole family loves it and it helps reduce my points :)
