We stick with a lot of their chinese/asian dishes. Look up General Tso's and chicken fried rice. They are staples in our house now.

mmm I love shephard's pie, although I haven't made the WW version.

I have some recipes typed up and photographed for my recipe book that I'll post.

Tortellini Primavera with Pesto Sauce (weight watchers)

1 - 9 oz. pkg of frozen cheese tortellini
1- 16 oz. pkg frozen broccoli stir-fry vegetables
1 - 8 oz. carton fat free sour cream
2 tablespoons pesto
teaspoon salt
cup (1 oz.) fresh parmsean cheese
⅛ teaspoon ground pepper

Cook tortellini and vegetables in 3 quarts boiling water 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables and pasta are tender. Drain and return to pan.
Combine sour cream, pesto, and salt, stirring well. Gently stir sour cream mixture into pasta mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper. Serve immediately.
Yields 4 servings, 7 points.

(weight watchers) Barbecue Meatloaf Recipe
1 pound ground round
cup barbecue sauce, divided
cup frozen chopped onion, pressed dry
cup Italian-Seasoned dry breadcrumbs
2 large egg whites
teaspoon pepper

1. Preheat oven to 375F

2. Combine meat, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, onion, breadcrumbs, egg whites, and pepper in a large bowl; stir well.

3. Shape mixture into a 7x5" loaf on a rack in a roasting pan. Spread remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over loaf. Bake at 375F for 25 minutes or to desired degree of doneness.

Yield: 4 servings.
Points: 5
Calories 228
Carbohydrate 10.4g
Fat 7.6g (saturated 2.6g)
Fiber 0.5g
Protein 27.7g

(I didn't have the right size pan when I baked this which is why it looks kinda weird.)

every sunday afternoon we throw this together and let it simmer for a few hours, its delicious and SO easy and great for leftovers:

Taco Soup

2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can of mexi-corn
3 cans of beans (any kind: I like kidney, pinto & black)
1 pkg of taco seasoning

put into a pot and simmer for a while
1 cup of this is 1 weight watchers point

also good served with cheese & sour cream: chili-style
I occasionally add in whatever I have on hand -- in the photo below Ive also included diced green peppers & shredded grilled chicken

This is also another big fav:
Weight Watchers Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

* 1 pound ground round
* 1 (15 ounce) can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
* Cooking spray
* 1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
* 1 cups (6 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 425.

Cook meat in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary, and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated.

While meat cooks, coat a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of the baking dish. Top the pizza crust with meat mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 12 minutes. Top with cheese, and bake 5 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Yield: 6 servings. Each serving is 6 Weight Watcher's points.
*I always add whatever 0 point veggies I have on hand such as mushrooms, onions & peppers.

This is one of DH's all-time favorite meals. I think its OK. I don't care for cilantro but DH LOVES it. I just eat it without the cilantro.

Southwestern Chicken Pizza
1 (10 ounce) thin crust pizza (boboli)
cooking spray
1 cup refried beans
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles; drained
1 cups shredded chicken breast
1 cup reduced-fat mexican blend cheese
cup fresh salsa
chopped green onions
chopped fresh cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 475.
2. Place pizza crust on an ungreased baking sheet; lightly coat crust with cooking spray; bake at 475 for 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine beans and chiles in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
4. Spread bean mixture evenly over baked crust. Arrange chicken over beans. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
5. Bake at 475 for 9 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden. Spoon salsa onto pizza. Top with green onions and cilantro. Cut into 8 slices. Yield: 8 servings. 4 weight-watchers points.

My family loves the tuna casserole recipe from the ww complete cookbook. I'm not sure what the new points is because I haven't calculated it since the new system came in.

Shannon are those the new points or old?
