Makeover - How We Did It
We've taken a classic recipe and made it over to save you 100 calories, 13g of fat and 6.5g of sat fat per serving. We used half the amount of extra lean ground beef in place of Italian sausage, egg whites instead of eggs and eliminated the butter. We replaced the sour cream with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and added spinach to this creamy filling. These simple changes result in a great tasting dish!
