This casserole freezes great.Makes 9 servings (each serving, 1 slice)Shopping TipsThere are several brands of whole wheat or whole grain lasagna noodles that will work great for this recipe. I used a brand called Eating Right and bought it at Vons/Safeway.Use Buitoni Light Alfredo Sauce, if possible. It comes in a 10 ounce container and can be found in most supermarkets in the refrigerator section where fresh pasta and sauces are displayed. If you can't find it, there are several brands of jarred light Alfredo sauce in the pasta aisle. They come in a larger, 15 ounce jar, so you'll need to buy 2 and save the extra for another use.Sargento's Reduced-fat 4 Cheese Italian Blend is delicious. If you can't find it use any brand of reduced-fat mozzarella cheese.Jarred roasted red peppers are sold in most supermarkets. They're packed in water, not oil. I used aboutjar of Trader Joe's fire roasted red peppers.Weight Watchers (old points) 6Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS 7SKINNY FACTS: for 1 serving (1 slice)290 calories, 10g fat, 24g protein, 26g carbs, 3g fiber, 503mg sodium, 3g sugarNote:1.
