    I made this for my Lenten Friday lunch dish and it was DIVINE!  I was out of white wine vinegar, so I substituted Balsamic vinegar.  I calculated the Weight Watchers points on this and it's 1 Points Plus per serving!  I had 2 servings for lunch and I am stuffed.  :)  Super dish....get yourself a Spiralizer!
