    OK – so I cheated and used a little bit more white wine – but I also added more mushrooms and shallots (0pts according to wt watchers) Its amazing! You can have two helpings as a meal (8pts) – or one helping with a chicken breast for a full meal – either way – very filling – and very delicious.
