    My boyfriend left his leftover pasta salad from an Italian restaurant in my fridge. It is pasta with a cream based sauce & a small amount of breaded chicken. I was planning on eating a cup of it for dinner & “bulking it up” with some lettuce. I have no idea how to count the points though. I was thinking 8-10. Anyone?

    According to the food companion a 3oz breaded chicken breast prepared without fat is 4 points. I would add at least 1 pt as it was probably prepared with fat. Restaurants go for taste, not calories.

    It lists frozen fettucine with alfredo, brocolli and chicken as 9 points per cup...but that wouldn't be breaded chicken.

    If it seems not too buttery or cheesy and there are lots of veggies, 10 points would probably be a safe estimate. But if it is rich you might want to guess more like 13-14.

    Thanks - I decided to toss it & go get something a little easier to count, though. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Good idea. I find that some things are better left in the garbage can. With restaurants, you never know what they add for the taste. Even simple dishes you would make at home they slather with oil and butter.
