Recipe Roundup

The wild, wild West has been on my mind lately, as both drama productions I'm involved in are set in the old West. It looks like we've got most of the kinks worked out and we're getting ready to jump into rehearsals. Can't wait!

In the meantime, here are two yummy things I've made recently that are both Weight-Watchers friendly! :)

Sunday Evening Pizza

1 whole wheat personal-size pizza crust (6 points)

1/4 cup no-sugar-added pizza sauce (1 point)

1/4 cup fat-free shredded mozzarella cheese (1 point)

1/4 cup reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (2 point)

You can add your favorite low-point toppings if you like - sweet peppers, onions, fresh pineapple, tomatoes, and any other veggie is 0 points; a slice of canadian bacon chopped up or a tablespoon of bacon bits are only 1 point. I'm a cheese freak, so I'm happy with just cheese. :)

Assemble, bake, and enjoy!

Asparagus Pastries

1 tube of refrigerated crescent rolls

8 slices reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

1 bunch thin asparagus spears

Steam asparagus until just tender; divide into 8 servings. Divide the crescent rolls into eight balls of dough; roll each ball into a square and place asparagus spears in the center. Place one slice of cheddar cheese over asparagus, and wrap in dough. Bake according to directions on crescent roll tube. Makes 8. (5 points each pastry)
