honey roasted soy nuts, first time I ever ate these, I love
them and even thought my sister's BF doesn't know it yet, he
is going to make brittle and substitute these to see if it
will work.

Chicken sausage, 2 points totally excellent

Breaded eggplant cutlets. pretty point dense, if you like
this kind of thing you will love it. I will save it for the
last day of the week and flex points.

noodles italiano SP? easy to fix and in a rush OK but you
can do the same by boiling penna pasta and throwing on a can
of delmonte zucchini and tomatosauce

garlic humus sp? I wish I hadn't purchased this it is
just too good

I have already talked about spinach pie, pitas and 2
point bagels.

I haven't tried the eggplant cutlets, think I do remember
looking at them and thinking the points were rather high.
Then thought maybe I could make something similar myself
(but never quite got around to trying). I do love the
chicken sausage though, and am thrilled that you found them
good too. They are a staple in our home, so much you can do
with them.

I've never tried the humus either ... am wondering if I even
dare trying. I need no new addictions. <G>

There is a WW recipe to make eggplant parmesan, if you stopped after the
breading it would be similar, no cheese or sauce, just bake. and lots less
points. I bought these to see if they were different and as good as they
are they will only be used to fix the "emergency" food when we are both too
tired. but they are tasty, I love garlic so the spread is just tooto good,

We went out to dinner the other night and I ordered Eggplant
parm. Brought half home but was shocked at the number of
points the meal had. I'm not sure when I'll have that again.

yeah, that would be a definitely high point meal item.
Figure the only *good* think in it is the eggplant.
Breading, cheese, oil, sauce all are pretty point laden. I
make chicken parmesan at home (a generic version) and it's
only about 3 or 4 points. Perdue packages breaded chicken
cutlets that are 2 and 3 points each .. hunts canned
spaghetti sauce is about 1/2 a point per cup, I add my own
spices to it ... and a slice of ff mozzarella cheese. Bake
the cutlets, top with sauce and cheese when done baking,
and pop in the oven for just a minute to melt the cheese.
Everyone in the house loves it, and it is a quickie meal
with little to no muss/fuss for me. I usually serve it with
some veggies, a salad and wheat pasta on the side (I like
my pasta).

I was so disappointed when I got home. DH does not like
eggplant so I figured it was an okay meal. NOT! Had a 1/4
for lunch the next day and there is still another 1/4
serving for lunch in the refrig. Not sure if I will bother
eating it or not.

I'll pass your chicken parm recipe to DH, the chef. He likes
quick and easy meals. Not that he has anything better to do
than play his computer games all afternoon. <g>

The WW recipe for egg plant is similar but they layer it, I am gonna get DH
to just do it on a baking sheet and not layer it, should taste like olive
garden I think, Lee

It was at a local family owned italian restaurant. I figured
about 1-2 points per ounce.

would be lower than the Chicken parm that I normally have

How big is their portion? I brought 8oz home so I am
guessing that the whole thing was close to a pound.

oh, I did some looking and I choose the olive garden because it does seem to
have less oil, it is worth the points as I love it sooo much, sorry that was
