    Erindipity's Note:

    I created this light version of Greek Ground Beef Roll by evelyn/athens as a way to enjoy this wonderful meal without having to feel guilty about the fat and calories. While the original recipe was 14 WW pts for 1/6th of a roll, the light version now comes to 5 pts for 1/6th of a roll. A huge improvement in my book. To get a thicker sauce you can use fat-free half and half, but that may raise the points value.
