Hey Sky,

 

You know, you could probably make this much lower in points but substituting something for the sausage? Maybe 1/2lb. of turkey sausage??? All in all, it's mostly veggies in this recipe so it's probably the italian sausage that's making it so high in points.

 

Just a thought ;)

Gillie's right... 1 lb of regular italian sausage has 43.5 points, but if you can find low fat turkey italian sausage, lb is only 16.5 points....

 

that one change would knock off approx 4 points per serving.. :D
