I could hardly believe it when I first saw this yummy, cheesy, pasta dish - on the weight watchers website! How could this possibly a weight watchers recipe. Could all of that pasta goodness really be included in a healthy dinner? I copied the nutritional facts from weight watchers just to show you. (I needed prove myself.)

I thought this was a delicious dinner. Both of my kids picked out the big pieces of tomato. Next time, I may have to chop the tomatoes a little finer to make the dish more "kid-friendly." It was still a yummy dinner and it didn't take me all night to prepare. This ones a keeper.
