Expert Tips

If you're watching fat grams, use reduced-fat sour cream or reduced-fat or fat-free plain yogurt instead of regular sour cream. To complete the menu, add a crisp green salad of romaine lettuce topped with fresh orange slices drizzled with your favorite reduced-fat dressing.

*Based on ingredient costs to create four servings of the recipe and side dish (Green Giant Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli Steamers).
