    Is the 6oz of pasta before or after it is cooked?!

  3. Manny on July 9, 2015 at 12:00 am

    How many ounces for one bowl?

    Just made this tonight! Super tasty.

    I’ve had some inedible dishes before, trying to use Greek yogurt for savory dishes, but this turned out awesome! Topped it with some breadcrumbs, used chicken breast instead of tuna, and got a delicious, protein packed meal under 350 calories!

    Can this be frozen, thawed in the fridge, and reheated?
