    My husband and I enjoyed this recipe! The addition of orange juice is a nice change of pace from typical rhubarb recipes. I served this warm with a scoop of frozen yogurt.

    This recipe is delicious. How often do you find a dessert that is under 200 calories? I goofed and threw in the rhubarb along with the sauce as it was cooking instead of adding it after it was thickened and it still turned out fine. I didn't have o.j. on hand but used orange pineapple juice with good results. This is a scrumptious recipe that doesn't have trans fats. Weight Watchers would like to hear about this one. Loved it.

    Yummy! Note - the sugar, cornstarch, water & orange juice mixture never got clear, just thickened after I turned the heat up enough. Turned out great!~ Theresa
