This recipe came from a good friend of mine...from what I know she made it up. I've had to estimate the amounts, since she usually made this by taste, rather than measurements.
It's very tasty and a good pasta salad to bring as a side dish to a bbq/party.
Note: You may want to add a bit more ranch just before serving, since the pasta tends to absorb moisture while it sits.
I made this on the fly for dinner this week. I used what I had in the kitchen...and it was easy and delicious. This can be served with orzo, pasta, mashed potatoes, rice, or even couscous (to give you some ideas). We served it with cream cheese mashed potatoes the first night...and since we had lots of leftovers, served it mixed with rigatoni pasta and an extra can of 98% fat free condensed cream of chicken soup and 1/4 cup water.
This is a dish I threw together one night (actually, I was on bed rest in the last weeks of my 1st pregnancy). We loved this dish so much - it was a huge hit. It's a basic spaghetti dish, but dressed up just a bit...definitely beats eating spaghetti with standard jarred sauce.
My husband added crushed red pepper to his portion - I'm not a fan of red pepper - but he really loved it.
This pie is so delicious - that it's hard to believe it's low cal - and even low fat compared with most peanut butter pies. I received the recipe from a friend, but made a few changes to it.
A yummy variation would be to fold a sliced banana into the pie filling mixture and add a few slices to the top or add some crushed Oreo cooking on top.
This is a variation of a recipe I found online. I use fat free cheeses to reduce fat/calories but to keep a cheesy flavor in the dish. When cooking chicken - use cooking spray rather than oil/butter to keep calories/fat lower.
I found this recipe on Cooking Light online. Made a few adjustments and substitutions to cut down calories/carbs. These muffins are a nice addition to a homemade brunch or even just for snacking! The muffins can be made a couple days in advance - just leave the glaze off until the day they will be served.
I found this online at simple recipes - a great summer dessert using fresh berries from the market. I edited this recipe from the original I found online to be made with Splenda products (artificial sweetener and brown sugar) to reduce carbs/calories a bit. Also, this is yummy served along side a complimentary ice cream or gelato (vanilla, chocolate, coffee, etc.).
This is a recipe I altered aftering finding online - cooking light, I think. It's a great dish that can be eaten/served chilled or warm. The dish is great for summer parties or just something to add to an everyday dinner/lunch. Add 1/4 cup of grated romano cheese after preparation of the dish for some added flavor!!!
I threw this together one night after work. It was a fast and very tasty meal! My husband loved it. We used frozen cooked shrimp, but fresh is always good too. Also, even though we used whole wheat pasta...feel free to use whatever type of pasta you prefer.
This recipe came from my mother-in-law...she served it one night and was a huge hit. I used fat free cream cheese to cut back on the fat/calories a bit, but feel free to use the regular cream cheese. This is great served with pretty much any type of cracker or warmed/toasted pita!
I found this recipe online (pizzamaking.com) - it's considered the "Pizzeria Uno" pizza. You can pretty much put any type of topping on this pizza - we added ground beef, green pepper and onion.

This recipe came from InStyle Magazine Nov 2007 issue. I made it with mixed organic greens as my family's Thanksgiving Dinner salad...everyone loved it! The salad didn't need anything other than the dressing and greens...it was perfect and simple!
I found a lowfat oatmeal cookie recipe on foodfit.com and made some changes - added eggbeaters and light butter, rather than real eggs and full-fat butter - to make them even lower in fat/cholesterol. Don't overcook them - they will dry out. Add raisins or chocolate chips - both very yummy in these cookies. ENJOY!!!
