Real Chics, Real Food: Low Fat Baked Ziti with Spinach with 1 WW Points+ Meatballs
Everyone boasts about how easy baked ziti is, but I never actually tried it myself. When I stumbled upon this healthy recipe from Skinny Taste, I had to give it a try. This was a hit with my husband... but not so much with me. There was a tad bit too much spinach for my liking. Given that I have to ease myself into eating more veggies, this was too much too soon. However, the flavor was still amazing, like all of Gina's recipes, I just couldn't deal with the texture of the spinach that was heavily dispersed throughout the pasta. For a good sized serving, it comes out to 8 WW Points+ or 296 calories. Not too shabby, right?
Being the carnivore that I am, I also had to make some meatballs to go on the side. I used my own recipe that you can find right HERE. And guess what? Each meatball is only 41 calories or 1 WW Points+.
