I don't have book to suggest, but I can tell you some of the things I make and I'm feeding two people.
I do lasagna with whole wheat noodles, low fat ricotta, organic extra lean ground beef, organic part skim mozerella cheese and spinach (on my half, in with the cheese). Cook the noodles, steam the spinach, layer it up with some pasta sauce and into the over at about 350 for 45 minutes. I do one in a 8x8 pan so it does four big slices.
Also just did chicken nuggets - chicken breast, cut up, dipped in egg white, little bit of garlic powder, then breadcrumbs and cook in olive oil for a few moments just to get the skin to stay on and then bake the rest of the way. 300 degrees for 12-15 minutes (my oven is also really hot). I used organic honey as a dipping sauce.
And whenever I have leftover meat from making meat (can use turkey, ground beef) with whole wheat pasta I make burgers (onions, green pepper, egg white and breadcrumbs) to freeze. Same combination also makes meatballs.
Tonight is homemade pizza on a small whole wheat pita for the crust. Top it up with veggies, pizza sauce and cheese and toss it in the oven. It won't take too long.
As you tell, we eat meat for dinner pretty much nightly but I do try and switch it up. Throw tons of veggies with a little of any of the above and it does a pretty good supper.
Some of others in the forum who eat less or no meat should be able to suggest some other options.
