Weight watcher note: Not too many diets like carbs...sad because they're so good. But, everything in moderation. Make sure you're not eating carbs for every meal or even many per day. Also, if you have 10 points, you're going to need to make the next meal fruit/salad/soup- not creamy oriented. Also big note: if a vegetable stuffing has this many points, it basically says that sausage and cheese stuffings are going to be way past point limits.
Vegetarian Note: try to make one meal/day vegetarian. Helps your health (many proven diet tests) and the animals. We don't need to GORGE on meats to go through as many animals as we do! BTW, the definition here for vegetarian means its ok to eat eggs/milk. Myself, I figure these are products that have to be released for the health of the animal!

1 serving, takes 20 mins; About 10 points

1/2 C spinach (can sub mixed greens)
1/2 TBL lite Italian dressing (put on mixed greens)
Stack up with cheese & pizza seasoning on top. Cook 15mins, serve.
Almost homemade means you’ve taken shortcuts from "raw" for speed
TJs quattro cheese is a blend of: asiago, parm, fontina, provolone
TJs cutlets are very good...there isn't a hard rind and theyre very soft. (eggplant gets rubbery if not cooked right)
