Recipe Roundup: A St. Patrick’s Day Feast

These five hearty main courses and sweet-comfort dessert let you enjoy St. Paddy’s Day without the gut-busting guilt.
Corned Beef

On St. Patrick's Day, everyone is Irish! But with all that good-natured celebrating, it can be a tough holiday to enjoy while keeping an eye toward the scale.

Each has a distinct Irish lilt, without the PointsPlus value shocker!
