   Here's a recipie I modified to  be fat-free over the weekend.
   I sometimes get tired of tomato based sauces for pasta and just
   love this as alternative. I didn't see anything like it in the
   archives (though I my have missed it :-)) so I thought I'd post
   it for all to enjoy.
   As you can see it's in meal master format, I just started using 
   it and find it great especially with recipies (thanks Sue, Karen
   et al.).
