I was looking for a special recipe for my brother-in-law's birthday. We have been doing the nutrisystem diet together and he has lost over 100lbs.! This recipe just might be the ticket and it was an orphan so I claimed it. It has all the earmarks of being just the "light side" I was looking for. Will be making it this Sunday so I will let you all know how it turns out! I can tell you right now I will be substituting the low sodium herbox beef bouillon packets for the called for granules, and protein enriched whole wheat noodles instead of rice. Wish me luck!
