Back when Weight Watchers was still using their old Points plan, I posted a Beef Tips in Mushroom Sauce Recipe. Since then, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and questions about it, so I decided to re-make this dish, change it up a bit, and calculate the new Points + value. Even though it ends up being 10 Points + per serving, these beef tips were sooooooo good! If you are a meat lover, then this is absolutely worth the splurge in Points. It packs in tons of protein too, so it’s really a satisfying dish. Try serving it over some Miracle Noodle orzo for 0 Points +, or over your favorite rive or noodles for additional Points +. This is one easy Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe that is a must make this fall/winter
If you are looking to indulge a bit and spend some Points on a seriously delicious and healthy recipe, then this Lemon Spinach Chickpea Pasta with Parsley Pesto is that dish. It’s so beautiful and flavorful, and even though each serving is 10 Points +, it’s crazy filling. I found the original version of this Pasta Recipe at The Year in Food, and thought it looked incredible. So I re-made her Preserved Lemon + Chickpea Pasta with Parsley Pesto, and created a version that was much lower in Points +, but still had all the divine flavors and textures of the original version. With all the protein, fiber, carbs and nutrients this vegan Weight Watchers recipe has to offer, I didn’t even feel the need to serve it with a side dish. My family enjoyed it for a nice Saturday afternoon lunch, and then we followed it with some fruit a couple of hours later. We were full till dinnertime. A complete meal that’s well worth the 10 Points +.
If you want a delicious, yet healthy pasta recipe that is oh-so satisfying, give this Creamy Garlic Shrimp Pasta with Vegetables Recipe a try, asap! I know, I know…10 Points + can seem kinda scary, but it’s really equivalent to the old Weight Watchers Pasta Recipes that were around 7 Points. So try not to freak about the Points + Value of this dish, since everyone’s daily Points Plus allowance is a lot higher now. But if you are really that freaked out, cut the serving size down to 1 cup for just 5 Points +. :) Also, keep in mind that each serving is 2 cups, which a FABULOUS serving size! It’s such a flavorful dish with so many wonderful colors and textures, it makes an ideal healthy pasta recipe to serve at a dinner party! Loaded with veggies and fiber, it has a slight Mediterranean flavor, and works well with a variety of side dishes. It’s also pretty easy to make, so you won’t be slaving all day in the kitchen!
