Creamy Goat Cheese Pesto Omelet (Ww 10 Pointsplus)
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
2 servings
Based on a recipe from John La Puma, M.D.’s cookbook, ChefMD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine. I use whole eggs since I believe the entire egg is good for you. DH says this recipe is like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant -- it's delicious! This is 10 PointsPlus (Weight Watchers) for each serving. Feta cheese may replace the goat cheese, and peas may replace the edammame. Tip: try different types of pesto in this dish: sundried tomato, cilantro, even arugula.
