    I've made this in the microwave a few times when I'm in a super hurry. Turns out good. I use the potato button on the microwave and cook the meat on the stove. Cuts the oven time out.

    Wouldn't that be good as a salad?

    It sounds scrumptious! Think I will try it on a bed of wilted spinach. Thanks for the recipe.

    is fabulous. I think everyone should try it right away. I made mine with 12 ozs. of morning star crumbles (no one noticed) so that reduced the points, however, I still ate 5 points worth. My whole family loved it. When I go shopping this Saturday I will get the ingredients to make it again next week. This is a real keeper.

    By the way, I served it as a main dish, and it was very filling for everyone. Cybergranny asked if it would be good as a salad, however, I'm not sure about that.
    Did you make this up yourself?

    Many thanks -

    I'm glad you liked this dish. [img]smile.gif[/img]
    Unfortunately , I'm not the mastermind behind this tasty meal. I copied it from a cookbook called Heathly Exchanges (aka HE)
    It is one of my favorites. SOOOO EASY to make and VERY good.

    BTW, about the salad- I'm not sure . I noticed she (cybergranny) was going to try it with wilted spinach. I wonder how that turned out. I'm not a fan of hot salads. But what ever works!
