  1. I am confused how you got only 4 WW points for this... I put it in WW recipe builder using exactly the ingredients you gave and for 8 servings it is 8 points per serving. That's double the points and would make a big difference for someone trying to strictly stay within their points.

    Seriously? This isn't inspired by or adapted from. This is nearly an exact copy of my almost 5 star recipe on Allrecipes. It has over 6,000 ratings. Give credit where credit is due. I came up with this 15 years ago while heavily pregnant and needing to feed my family with what I had on hand. Back when you had to have recipes vetted to get them published.
