  • Mini Ravioilis

    Mini Ravioilis

    Points: 7 (for 15 raviolis)
    Calories:
    Cheese ravioli are a reasonable option (in moderation). I put these in soups, or have them with Marinara sauce, or sauteed vegetables. I don't know if your local grocery store will have this brand and size, but if you can scan or reference the nutrition label of any frozen cheese ravioli package, I bet you will find they are fairly low in points.
