I was a tad hesitant to do a low fat version. However it turned out wonderful. Be sure to not cook too long--i had put it in a 13x9 pan and did not need to bake as long. Everyone loved it and my family had no clue it was low fat!

The written recipe does not match the video. The recipe in the video seems better. They should at least be consistent!
