Pizza Pasta Bake

Today, I tried a new Pinterest recipe. It is called, Pizza Pasta bake. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!! It made 10 portions. I served out one for each of us, put two away for lunches for Scott and I and the boys ate the rest. I served it with steamed green beans, strawberries and baby carrots. It was only 6 points plus for the whole plate!!!!!!!!!! Gotta love 0 point fruits and veggies.
