This is a wonderful low calorie and low fat version of the French classic. It’s so easy and straightforward. I’ve served it many times and everyone loves it. My version uses white wine instead of red wine, which creates a lighter tasting sauce and is cooked on the stove top instead of the oven. The skinny on one serving is 234 calories, 3 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. A regular recipe has 572 calories and 30 grams of fat. It smells so wonderful while cooking and is truly a gourmet treasure
