You won't feel blue when you read the Nutrition Facts! This is a healthier adaptation of Recipe #110317. For the pasta, I use Barilla Plus Multigrain Elbows which have 10 grams of protein and only 2 grams of fat per serving.
A different way to serve portobello mushrooms...filled with pasta! A recipe for the grill. Taken from BH&G. Note: the gills on the underside of the mushroom caps can discolor the other ingredients in this recipe, that's the reasoning behind scraping them away with a spoon. Updated: FYI, I "grilled" the mushrooms and romatoes on my George Foreman and they came out fantastic...this is now officially an "any season" recipe!
Becoming nutrition-conscious doesn't mean you have to give up favorites like Fettucine Alfredo. This is a light version of the classic - delectable but with a fraction of the fat. Toss with pasta, use as sauce for chicken - the possibilities are endless!
You can add any vegetable to this sauce if you'd like to add some color, such as broccoli, cut green beans, asparagus or garnish of cherry tomatoes. Taken from the 15-Minute Gourmet "Noodles" cookbook.
This is a great, light pasta dish with very little oil. Please note to adjust the cooking time if using pasta other than spaghetti. I often omit the olives due to a daughter that doesn't like them and it's still fabulous. You can also adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to your liking. Another variation is to use cherry tomatoes, halved instead of regular tomatoes. My family really enjoys this dish, hope you do too!!
This is the easiest dinner!! One pot, one serving dish...only minutes to prepare AND cook! When corn on the cob is not in season, I simply add a drained can of corn. Leftovers taste even better!! Not sure where I got this recipe, but I have made this dish over and over again and never get tired of it.
Found this in a Weight Watcher's cookbook of recipes from the magazine in 2000. This is fast to make and has a nice flavour. Not a zingy dish, but the kids and I enjoyed it. 2/3 of a cup is 3 WW points.
I love this dish! It is one of my favorite side dishes. It's modified from a recipe by Diane Morgan in her book, The Thanksgiving Table. It can be a side dish, or a stuffing for poultry. It is not sweet at all, but the cranberries give a nice contrast with the rest of the ingredients.
