This is a wonderfully filling soup that is a complete meal in one dish. If you use full fat italian sausage, you will need to drain the fat before adding the liquid ingredients or skim the fat from the soup as it simmers. This recipe is very suitable for Weight Watchers if you use very lean sausage and go easy on the tortellini.
This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in the April 2002 issue of the now-defunct BHG Hometown Cooking magazine. They disappear almost instantly whenever I make them. I like them because the fruit isn't mashed and incorporated into the batter as it is in most banana recipes.
This recipe substitutes ricotta cheese with tofu. Don't tell anyone, and they'll never know the difference! You can also add some meat-substitute (my favorite is Quorn grounds) to make what seems to be a meaty lasagna... and only you will know there's no meat in it!
This has been a favorite of ours for many years. It is from the "Recipes from the Vineyards of Oregon" cookbook. Delicious and elegant meatballs, the food service where DH teaches now makes these for entertaining.
I had this chili on my recent trip to Arizona and it is out of this world delicious. Chef Burke Perry at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, was kind enough to share the recipe with me. This makes a lot but I'm sure you can freeze it or feel free to reduce the amounts.
These healthy tacos are packed with protein and are vegetarian friendly. I make them for a delicious, filling lunch after a morning workout. I came up with this recipe for my clients who love mexican food but are health conscious as well. They are also super simple to make. Enjoy!
This recipe is an easy and delicious way to dress up pre-made gnocchi. It is a light and flavourful and the zucchini ribbons make for a beautiful presentation. It also works really well with a flat pasta, like linguine. (Small shells would probably work too.) It is modified from a recipe from "EatingWell Magazine".
