  1. Hi There! I have been on WW now for almost two years and I love coming on here to find recipes! I am a tad confused, however, because when I am calculating this the meat alone comes up to 3 points per serving and and bread (thins) come up to 3 points per serving. I am sure I am just misunderstanding, can someone please help? Thanks ! :)

  2. I find this dish make 6-1/2c servings for 4 weight watchers points plus. I used the recipe builder and calculated the points value. With that said, this is amazing, very yummy!! Will be making it again!!
