4th of July BBQ

I don't know what our plans are for 4th of July especially since it falls on a Wednesday which stinks since most people have to work the next day! (not me) Hopefully we will be spending it either on our boat or at the beach in the sun, but I'm sure we will end up cooking out and I will be making this side dish from SkinnyTaste.Com. I am italian and love my carbs so when someone says its okay to have them in a healthy way count me in. It is only 3 ww pts and 115 calories for 1 cup. Yes Please!
