Very easy, very little prep. I use to buy a product made by Lipton, which came in a bottle and you poured it over your diced potatoes and baked/grilled the dish. They have since discontinued the product, so I have found this to be the next best thing.
My non-ricotta cheese-eating husband always raved about "the meat stuffed shells his mom used to make." His grandmother recently wrote to the TV guide (where this recipe originated) and they were kind enough to send back the recipe, dated September 13, 1976. I have to agree, these are delicious! Serve with a tossed salad and garlic bread. The prep time includes the pasta/beef cooking; the cook time is the baking time for the casserole.
Tastes like a pizza, cuts like a pizza, yet there is no dough....though do have a fork and knife on hand for eating purposes because it can get a little messy if eaten with hands only. I am a South Beach dieter with a love for Italian foods and this is what curbs my craving for pizza. I love mine with the turkey pepperoni slices, onion, green peppers and mushroom. Serve with a tossed salad or marinated veggies.
Another personal South Beach Diet friendly favorite of mine. It's flavorful and easy to throw together, bakes in less than 1 hour. I serve this with a side of my Mexican Jumping Beans. For the taco seasoning, I like to make my own (no sugar added; there are plenty of taco seasoning Zaar recipes to choose from, if you would like to make your own.
The first apple pie I ever made; easy and simple directions. And real apples, no canned apple pie filling! I made this for dessert when company was over and I figured if I screwed up, I could always pass it off as apple cobbler with ice cream served over it, but it came out great, looked and tasted like a real apple pie!
While on the South Beach diet, this dish satisfies my craving for the standard chicken parmesan dish.....but this recipe is missing the breadcrumbs. But it's so good you won't miss the breadcrumbs! In the world of low carb dieting, I like to serve this with a green veggie and/or tossed salad.
I LOVE going to the Outback and ordering this side with my steak. I could eat these alone! This is a copycat recipe; one I have had saved but have yet to try. But if this recipe is a true copycat of what I have eaten at Outback, you will not be sorry!
This is one of my favorites on the South Beach diet. I usually eat this for breakfast or for a snack; it really satisfies my "sweet tooth". For those on South Beach, count the pecans as part of your daily nut allowance.
This soup is creamy as well as hearty and filling; easy to prepare and budget-friendly. The corn adds a tiny bit of sweetness to the taste. For variety, you could probably add some peas and/or carrots; shredded cheddar for topping upon serving. Add some nice warm bread to accompany the meal. This recipe is courtesy of Taste of Home Magazine, a 2nd place winner in a soup contest.
Done in 20 minutes on the stovetop; I like to serve this with my Low Carb Mexi Baked Chicken for a complete and festive low carb dinner. Also a tasty, easy side dish to serve with your tacos, fajitas, etc.
This dish is great and easy for an everyday family dinner and great, easy and fancy enough for company. You can mix and match with chicken or seafood or both combined. Serve with a salad and your choice of warm bread. I've gotton many compliments on this one! If you want some leftovers, double this recipe for dinner serving of 4.
My mom's recipe! Delicious and easy meal on those cold winter days. You can cook it either in oven or crockpot; but I find the meat is more tender when made in the crockpot. Make sure you wash off the cubes well. If you find the mixture to be thin after cooking awhile, you can add another can of soup. Serve with warm bread & colorful vegetable (for nice presentation).
