After purchasing my Weight Watchers Family Style cookbook at my meeting, I skimmed through the book and attached sticky notes all over the place on recipes I wanted to make at home. I found this cookbook to be one of the better ones (in my opinion) because there are far more recipes I’d be willing to try not only for myself but for my family. I realize I’m the only Weight Watcher in the house BUT that doesn’t mean my family can’t eat healthier. But when cooking for others, I do have to take in others tastes but most importantly dislikes. For instance, my boyfriend doesn’t like cheese – so if I do make a dish that involves cheese, I have to remove his portion before the cheese is added. But I will say outside of that one dislike I don’t really change up my style of cooking because at the end of the day, those who enjoy my dishes have no idea they’re healthier recipes.
So, with that when I saw the Weight Watchers Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Pasta Salad recipe in the cookbook, I decided that was going to be part of dinner on Friday. And part of dinner it became! I had made Skinnytaste’s version last summer and loved it, so I figured this one had to be equally delicious – and it was! It was a hit, a serving was huge and it made a batch for 4 individuals which meant it wasn’t going to be lying around for a long time (which I wouldn’t want it to because of the tomatoes and lettuce in the dish).
I strongly recommend giving this recipe a shot because it’s totally worth it! 1 3/4cup is only 7 points plus!
