Made this tonight and my family loved it! I put half the cheese in and then half on top and stuck it under the broiler for a minute! Yum! (We love all your recipes, actually.). Thanks for sharing these with us. It’s helpful for me (on WW) to have easy, know-the-points, tasty, go-to recipes!

Made this with ground turkey and extra garlic tonight. It is delicious! Thank you! Do you have point value if fat free ground turkey is used?

Yay! I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Yes, the point value would be 7 points per serving if you use 99% ground turkey.

Thank YOU!
