“This sounds very interesting to me. Like a lowfat potato cake-bake. You can use applesauce instead of the pear sauce, as the pear sauce seems like quite a bit of work for a similar result. Serve this with spring mix lettuce and a light citrus dressing, and you have a wonderful vegetarian lowfat supper! Don't fret, the prep time includes the making of the pear sauce. From Betty Crocker's New Choices Cookbook.”
