here is my Mac & Cheese recipe if anyone wants it :

it is NOT low fat.. but its GOOOOOOD

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/2 soup can milk (I use 1%)
2 cups shredded cheddar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard - or a few good shakes
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups cooked and drained Elbows (I use dreamfields)
1 sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers (I have been using the everything ones lately YUM)
2 teaspoons butter, melted

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Stir the soup, shredded cheese, dry mustard, milk, black pepper in a sauce pan on low to melt the shredded cheese
Add the pasta tossing to coat then pour into a 1.5 quart casserole or 9x13.
Mix the cracker crumbs and butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the pasta mixture. We like an even crust on the whole M & C so sometimes more crackers are required
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pasta mixture is hot and bubbling

last night hubs had this with some french fried onions on top and said it was DELISH..

Rose.... sorry I didn't see this earlier. I use "Bob's Red Mill" variety most of the time. I have bought it in bulk from the grocery store, but not recently. I know that it can be pricey and I've found the BRM in a few different places. Just looked it up on Amazon and they do have a gluten free variety. Here is a link...

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana - Copied from All Recipes.

"This is an oh-so-good recipe. Just the right amount of spice to make you take a cold drink but definitely keep coming back for more! This soup is irresistible!"

1 pound bulk mild Italian sausage

1 1/4 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 large onion, diced

1 tablespoon minced garlic

5 (13.75 ounce) cans chicken broth

6 potato, thinly sliced

1 cup heavy cream

1/4 bunch fresh spinach, tough stems removed

Directions :

1.Cook the Italian sausage and red pepper flakes in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crumbly, browned, and no longer pink, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2.Cook the bacon in the same Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain, leaving a few tablespoons of drippings with the bacon in the bottom of the Dutch oven. Stir in the onions and garlic; cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
3.Pour the chicken broth into the Dutch oven with the bacon and onion mixture; bring to a boil over high heat. Add the potatoes, and boil until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the heavy cream and the cooked sausage; heat through. Mix the spinach into the soup just before serving.

THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE SOUP! I made a few tweaks like just shaking in a few shake of red pepper flakes, using pre cooked bacon, using chunked potato and extra spinach..
I just made it last night with Macaroni vs. potatoes and LOVED it!
Enjoy Michelle

SUPER SIMPLE butternut squash soup


1 lb cooked butternut squash soup - approximately 2 small-medium squash (I cut mine in half, scooped out the seeds and roasted it in the skin in the oven at 400 degrees 45 minutes and then scooped it from the skin. )

1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped

1 large sweet apple, peeled, cored, and chopped

4 C fat free vegetable stock (or chicken stock or a combo)

1 C fat free milk

1 tsp. salt (more or less)

pinch black pepper

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

pinch cinnamon

pinch ground ginger

pinch coriander

OPTIONAL - maple syrup


Spray a large stock pot with PAM and saute the onions and apple over medium heat until softened and translucent (try to not let them get browned), about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the 4 C of stock and the prepared squash to the pot, and let simmer for approximately 15 minutes with the lid on. After that add all of the spices (start with the 1 tsp. of salt and add more as needed at the end) and carefully transfer hot soup in batches to a blender or hit with a stick blender directly in the pot until soup is smooth.

Stir in the cup of milk and heat on low until it is serving temperature. Add additional salt to taste.

Add optional maple syrup to each serving as desired. Remember that the maple syrup must be counted in your daily PointsPlus if you are doing WW Simple Start (2 tsp. = 1 pt.)

Makes 4 - 2 cup servings.


For those on WW the WW.com Recipe Builder (that crazy math-challenged thing) builds this out to be 3 PPV per serving when it is broken down to 4 servings, but the entire pot of soup is stated to be 10 PPV if you count it as just one serving.... and if you look at the PPV of individual ingredients (not including the syrup) the entire batch should only be 3 PPV! So count this as you wish!

********

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a cook or chef or even a recipe tester. I am just a simple home cook (and not a very good one) who likes to try to make tasty recipes that are healthy and light. And I have only made this recipe ONCE! I use homemade vegetable stock that is salt-free, so it is hard for me to guess how much salt your batch will need if it is made with store-bought stock, which is why I suggested starting with just 1 tsp. of salt.... mine definitely needed more like 3 tsp. And it is delicious as-is, but just a tiny splash of the maple syrup made this absolutely DEVINE! .......................P

Thought I would add one I made on NYE for a healthy "dipper" for my Oikos Greek Yogurt Dill dip.

Ideally you need to plan ahead for this one.

Zucchini Chips

Zucchini
Olive Oil ( I use my Misto)
salt & pepper

Slice the zucchini in uniform thin slices. Press between paper towels to dry. Lightly oil a cookie sheet with olive oil. I use a Silpat silicone mat for easy removal and clean up. Lay out the slices and very lightly mist with olive oil. Put a very light sprinkle of salt and pepper on them.

Place in a 250 degree oven for at least 2 hours. They should be crispy and lightly browned when done. Store in a tightly sealed container.


IF you don't allow enough time, like I did for NYE, to allow them to cook for 2+ hours then you can put them in the microwave. I put mine on a stone tray but I think you can put them on a plate. Cooking time will vary based on the power of your microwave. Mine took about 3 mins per batch. They were not as crispy as if I had put them in the oven but still good.


This really was a SUPER easy recipe. I used a mandolin to cut my zucchini and it took minutes to cut up 4 of them. Then I just worked in batches. It would have been easier if I had been able to put them in the oven but I just didn't have enough time. They were SO GOOD and I didn't feel I was missing out on the chips or crackers. I would think it would work well with carrots too.

Picked up a package of good looking Portobello Mushrooms today and had to figure out what to do with them. I found a bunch of great recipes but none were what I wanted to so I combined elements from all of them!

I don't have measurements because all of this was just "a little of this, a little of that". Depending on how many you are making and which ingredients you like more your amounts will vary!

LTS Baked Portobello Mushroom

1 large Portobello Mushroom cap-- remove stem and gills
Balsamic Salad Dressing ( I used Bolthouse)
Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb cheese wedge
cooked chicken (I had leftover rotisserie chicken)
light mozzarella cheese shredded
pesto ( I used a jarred pesto found with the spaghetti sauces)

Place the mushroom in a baking dish -inside up- and lightly brush with the Balsamic Salad Dressing. (you could also marinate it for more balsamic flavor) Lightly salt and pepper the mushroom. Spread the Laughing Cow cheese in a thin layer across the inside of the mushroom.

Finely chop the chicken and put in a bowl. Stir in a few spoons of pesto to taste and some of the mozzarella cheese and mix. Spoon this mixture into the mushroom and bake at 425 for about 15 minutes or until browned. You can also add some fresh parmesan cheese on top too.


If I wasn't eating low carb I would probably also add some Panko Bread crumbs to the chicken mixture and make a "topping" of panko and parmesan to cover the top.

I found this recipe somewhere but when I googled it I couldn't find it again. It's so easy I can remember it.
Lisa... I'm finally getting around to trying this.... probably tomorrow. I was eyeing a bottle of the green salsa in my fridge, wondering why I EVER bought it. But now I've found a use for it!.............P

Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 8 • Serving Size: 1 stuffed breast • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 5 pts
Calories: 194.7 • Fat: 7 g • Protein: 24.2 g • Carb: 7.2 g • Fiber: 1.5 g

Ingredients:

8 thin chicken cutlets, 3 oz each
1/2 cup whole wheat Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
6 tablespoons egg whites or egg beaters
5 oz frozen spinach, squeezed dry of any liquid
6 tbsp part skim ricotta cheese
6 oz part skim mozzarella (I used Polly-O)
olive oil non-stick spray (I use my Misto)
1 cup pomodoro sauce or your favorite marinara sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Wash and dry cutlets, season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

Combine breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp grated cheese in one bowl and 1/4 cup egg beaters or egg whites in another.
Shred or finely chop 1.5 oz of mozzarella cheese and combine with remaining grated cheese, spinach (make sure you squeeze it dry), 2 tbsp egg beaters, and ricotta cheese.

Lay chicken cutlets down on a working surface and spread 2 tbsp of spinach-cheese mixture on each cutlet. Loosely roll each one and keep seam side down.

Dip chicken in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs and place seam side down in a baking dish (no toothpicks needed). Repeat with the remaining chicken. When finished, lightly spray with olive oil.

Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven, top with sauce then cheese.

Bake until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 3 more minutes. Serve with additional sauce on the side and grated cheese.



Here's the link to the original recipe......
http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/04/c...nach-alla.html

**************

And of COURSE, a few things I changed...

I didn't have any ricotta, so I used plain nonfat greek yogurt instead. I added a bit of garlic powder and italian seasoning to the filling as well. I also did not have frozen spinach, so I used chopped fresh baby spinach. The changes worked just fine.

I did NOT bread the portion I made for DH, to eliminate those extra carbs, but I did sprinkle it with a bit of grated parmesan.

I made these up to the breading stage on Sunday and then put them in the fridge. I pulled them out Monday evening, did the breading and baking that night. They were delicious and they held together well during the breading stage, possibly due to sitting overnight.

DH and I had leftovers for lunch the next day and we both agreed it tasted even better the next day!.....................P
