This recipe is so delicious and at only 213 calories per serving, you can enjoy without guilt. I like to serve mine over 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes and a veggie for a great tasting, low calorie meal. It can also be served over rice (my hubby's favorite way), or over noodles. It is so easy, the whole thing is done in your crock pot. You really feel like you're cheating, but you're not! Enjoy!
