Recipe comes from

No Noodle Lasagna
Low Carb Recipe

This lasagna is just as satisfying as lasagna with the noodles - but much healthier!

2 pounds lean ground beef, browned in olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
15-16 ounces ricotta cheese
Two eggs, beaten slightly
8 ounces tomato sauce
1/2 small can tomato paste
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
Fresh chopped parsley
Five large mushrooms, sliced thin
Two medium zucchini, sliced lengthwise
1 pound spinach, steamed
Salt and pepper to taste
One or two cloves garlic, crushed
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

Brown the meat in about 2-tablespoons olive oil. When meat is nearly done, add the onions and bell pepper and sauté until the onions just begin to soften. Add garlic and continue cooking until onions are transparent. Add tomato sauce and tomato paste along with the red wine. Mix well; add seasonings and simmer until quite thick.

Beat the eggs and ricotta together with some fresh chopped parsley, salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 325-degrees.
Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with olive oil or butter flavor Pam. Spread 1/2 of the meat mixture in the bottom of the pan. Top with sliced zuchinni. Spread zuchinni with the ricotta mixture, and top with spinach and mushroom slices. Top that layer with half of the cheeses. Cover with remaining meat mixture, top with remaining cheese. Bake at 325-degrees until the cheese is bubbly and starting to get golden (about 35 to 45 minutes.)

Recipe makes eight servings; six carbohydrates per serving.

This is where I found the pumpkin bread recipe. I know this isn't a health food recipe but it has a lot of fun recipes.

This is the pumpkin bread recipe I made.

Pumpkin Bread presented by White House Inn Bed & Breakfast

2 eggs, beaten
1 ½ c. sugar
1 c. pumpkin (I use Libby's)
½ c. oil
¼ c. water
¼ t. baking powder
1t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
½ t. cloves
½ t. cinnamon
1 2/3 c. flour
(Optional pecans or walnuts)

Combine eggs and sugar, mix well.
Add pumpkin, oil and water, blend thoroughly. Add all dry ingredients.
Bake in soup or vegetable cans, or small bread pans.
Fill cans or pans half full.
Bake 350 f. for 1 hour. (ovens differ check bread at 45 min.)
Makes about 15 servings depending on the cans or pans.

Default From the new South Beach Diet cookbook

Oven-Fried chicken with almonds
Serves 6

1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup (1 oz) grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp sald
1/4 tsp dried thyme
pinch of ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
and cut into 12 pieces

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese almonds, parsley, garlic, salt, thyme, and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

Place the oil in a shallow dish. Dip the chicken first in the oil, then dredge in the crumb mixture. Place the chicken in a shallow baking pan.

Bake at 25 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of a piece registers 170 degrees and the juices run clear. Do not turn the chicken during cooking.

Per serving:

383 calories
16 g fat
1 g fiber

8 WW points

We realized how much extra of the bread crumb mixture we had and put it in a bag for a later use.

Thai peanut chicken stir fry:

Add one pre-cooked chicken breast (diced or cut into strips) into the skillet or wok, and add enough spicy or mild Thai peanut sauce to coat. You can buy pre-cooked chicken strips, but it's cheaper to cook it yourself in the microwave. Once it's hot, add three peppers (I used one red, one yellow, and one green since they had a sale for them at the store), three stems of green onion, and one red apple, all chopped. I also added a handful of sliced roasted almonds, which you can either add in while it's cooking or use it to top the finished product. Stir on high heat until hot, maybe five minutes or so. Add more sauce to taste, but check the label of the one you use and be aware of the fat content and sodium. A little goes a long way, anyway. I failed to do this but it would be great to add a cup of wild rice with it. Sorry if this isn't too exact, but that's how I cook.

This is my favorite soup and maybe the easiest I've ever made. Perfect for these COLD days!This is my FAVORITE soup recipe and I've never liked vegetable soup. Doesn't look like much, but it is delicious. I calculate the points to be 5 each for eight servings. I'm using old WW materials to do this, so it may be higher, but I doubt it would be much based on the ingredients. I hope you like it.

The Best Beef Vegetable Soup

2 lbs ground round
1 onion
2 cans tomato soup
1 can diced tomatoes
1 sm. can tomato sauce
1 can large-cut mixed veggies (I use VegAll brand)
1 bag frozen mixed veggies

Brown meat and onion. Drain and rinse off oil. Mix in crockpot with
other ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low 8-10
hours. This is a thick soup. If you like soup with more broth, add
1 soup can of water.

This makes a BIG crockpot full! I use my 5 qt. crockpot for this. 8 servings, 5 Points each.

Remember to handly lightly - that is the secret to the nice light textrue.

I bet you could even use diet margarine or light butter as well as light cheese and reduce this by another 1/2 point. ??????

Default Quick Chick and Noodle Soup (courtesy of Rachel Ray)

Ok Ladies....I made this last Sunday (or the one before) and it was FABULOUS!!!

Rachel Ray's Quick Chick and Noodle Soup

2 tablespoons (2 turns around the pan) extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
2 bay leaves, fresh or dried
Salt and pepper
6 cups good quality chicken stock
1 pound (the average weight of 1 package) chicken breast tenders, diced
1/2 pound wide egg noodles
A handful fresh parsley, chopped
A handful fresh dill, chopped

Place a large pot over moderate heat and add extra-virgin olive oil. Work close to the stove and add vegetables to the pot as you chop, in the order they are listed.
Add bay leaves and season vegetables with salt and pepper, to taste. Add stock to the pot and raise flame to bring liquid to a boil. Add diced chicken tenderloins, return soup to a boil, and reduce heat back to moderate. Cook chicken 2 minutes and add noodles. Cook soup an additional 6 minutes or until noodles are tender and remove soup from the heat.
Stir in parsley and dill, remove bay leaves and serve. This is a thick soup. Add up to 2 cups of water if you like chicken soup with lots of broth.

This isn't really a recipe...but I have it for lunch and dinner often. I LOVE nachos, but the chips are not great for ya(well for me because I tend to go overboard on them, so don't like to keep them in the house). This is really good if you are just making a meal for one, but works for a family too. Super easy.

On a plate put a couple handfuls shredded, or chopped lettuce(we use green leaf or iceburg(once in a while), then pile on black beans(can heat them up...don't have to), cheese, salsa, olives, tomatoes, green onions(I put reg onions on too), green and red peppers, a dab of sour cream and a bit of guacamole(good fat). I love me lots of veggies.
