Hi! Love your recipes. Do you happen to know how many points the serving size increases if I use 93% ground turkey versus 99%?

Hi Natasha

Thank you for loving them! Yes, these can be made with 93% ground turkey. They would be 6 Smartpoitns per roll up if using 93% ground turkey on the blue or green plan.

Have a wonderful day

Hello

I am unable to find the fat free ricotta cheese at any stores in my area. I was only able to find the part-skim. If I use the part-skim will that raise the point significantly (1/4 cup = 70 calories, 4g fat, 4g carbs, 5g protein? or what other alternative could I use?

Thanks

Hi Kristy

The point value would increase by 1 smart point per serving if you were to replace the fat free ricotta for the part-skim ricotta! Still low in points and worth it!

Thanks!

Do you think cottage cheese instead of ricotta would turn out with the same consistency?

I’ve put FF cottage cheese in the bowl of a prep blender and pulsed a few times to get more of a ‘ricotta-like’ consistency! Works just fine!

Hi Sarah

Cottage cheese would work as a replacement for the ricotta. Keep in mind, the consistency or texture will not be the exact same...however it would still taste delicious. I prefer the smooth, creamy texture of ricotta cheese for this particular recipe.

Thanks so much!

I make these all the time! I actually think they taste even better frozen, thawed and reheated! A great staple to have on hand for a single gal like myself who doesn’t always feel like cooking every night but wants WW friendly options on hand. I made these for my dad who sadly is convinced anything that is “lite” or healthy doesn’t taste as good...boy did his jaw fall on the floor when I told him he’d just eaten ground turkey !! He’s a convert and realized healthy food can taste good too - even better :)
