    I know, i made a italian chicken sauce up at the weekend, it was totally free on EE and i got 2 decent dinners and a luch out of it, just did it with rice or pasta as i fancied, 3 entire proper sized meals for zero points, and 1 pesky tesco pasta tub is 20 syns,

    how the hell do you make a 20syn tomato based pasta sauce thats only 270g including pasta , it must be pure lard ,

    I reckon it's full of sugar and vegetable oil.... gross when you think about it. i think as a general rule, all those 'healthy' salad pots are lethal to SW.... you'd be better eating a sandwich for less syns!! x

    This is where I get a little grumpy with SW - why is it the same syn value on green and EE.
    The lowest syn value should be EE as both the pasta and the chicken should be free - but SW are odd and say the lowest red or green value is the EE value. Quite wrong.

    The syns will come from the oil in the dressing but I reckon you could deduct another 6 syns or so from the EE value.
