MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2010

This was a lot better than i expected it to be It is really hard to find recipes that taste good and are low in calories. I seasoned the egg whites with a little salt pepper and paprika. Turned out perfect in the oven and the pork was tender. My husband couldn't even tell it was one of my diet dinners!
