“While in Weight Watcher's, I combined several recipes and came up with this one... simply because I wanted a non-fat and mostly a thick, meaty sauce with everything in it but the kitchen sink :)... This is not a runny, thin sauce, but rather a very THICK, spicy and delicious Italian-like sauce! Sometimes I use it to make nacho's (not a Weight Watcher's dish) with shredded cheese and sour cream on corn chips for my hubby!”
