I found this recipe in Men's Health magazine. Considering it is far lower in calorie content than a standard lasagne it really is very tasty. It cuts down on all the fatty and calorie rich ingredients, such as the mozzarella and ground meat and packs in a lot of extra vegetables.

Got this from the daily email from HG. This looks really good. Saved here for safekeeping.

Recipe #258126

Keep all the traditional goodness of chicken tetrazzini yet whittle out some of the fat and calories. A great kid-friendly, weeknight meal to use up leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken from the deli. If you're not watching fat intake, feel free to use full-fat ingredients.

Recipe #254355

One of my favorite things to eat is fettuccine alfredo, but I don't always like all the fat associated with this dish. I found this recipe and it is really very good. Be sure to use imported Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano, which has an intense, buttery flavor that makes all the difference. If you are following Weight Watchers, this recipe has 6 points per 1 cup serving.

Recipe #212883

Comfort food at its best! Adapted this from a Land O Lakes recipe.

I tried to make this dish a little healthier by using olive oil instead of butter and yogurt instead of sour cream, and it's pretty tasty.

There is no butter in this using just a bit of olive oil that keeps the good fat in you and the bad fat (butter) off you. This is a great light dish for those romantic evening when you don 't want to get weighed down!

Recipe #152638

WW-friendly adaptation of the delicious recipe posted by *Pamela* (Recipe #123104). Changed ingredients to reflect lower fat variations like changing chicken pieces to boneless chicken breast and changing/reducing butter to olive oil as well as reducing amount of meat per serving in order to be ww friendly. (5 ww points)

Recipe #152284

A tasty version of a high-fat favorite! Enjoy with whole wheat pasta for a healthy meal. Substitute vegetable bouillon grandules for a vegetarian dish.

This is a tasty meatless quiche chock full of vitamins, minerals and protein. It is suitable for a lacto ovo vegetarian or anyone who wants a yummy and very nutritious quiche!

Recipe #147852

This is one of our favorite 'take out' meals! Recipe is courtesy of Juan Carlos Cruz from the Low Calorie Commando show on Food Network. Posted for the Low Fat Holiday Challenge.

Recipe #144379

This version of my favorite Chinese appetizer is baked instead of fried, making them lower in fat. They are absolutely delicious! I don't really like crab, but I devour these.

This is a delightful way to have huevos rancheros without alot of added fat and calories. The dish is easy to prepare for 1, 2 or even 4. I have given directions for 4. The sauce can be stored refrigerated for up to a week or put in containers and frozen for later. Enjoy a taste of New Mexico!

Recipe #130935

Tasty yet relatively easy on the waistline. Apple sauce replaces the usual fat to keep the cake moist. If you wanted to make it even lower calorie, you could substitute Splenda for some or all of the sugar.

Recipe #112174

Not sure where the original version came from but this includes my tweaks over the years. The results are a lovely crepe than can used for entreés or desserts without having to worry about fat and calories. Bon appettit! For those following Weight Watchers, it's 2 points per serving.

Several years ago, DH was in the hospital with a heart condition and was placed on a fat restricted diet. This recipe was provided by the hospital and I have used it since to make wonderful gravy, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Browning the flour is the key to rich fat-free gravy
