I had left overs to use up. Amounts used are approximate - use whatever is available! I consider this "light" because I used skim milk and less cheese and fewer potatoes than I might otherwise. It is 11 Weight Watchers Smart Points as written - not exactly light by those standards, but better than it could be!
