Just need to figure points for the gravy -- the one I bought ended up being less than one point per serving.

Default Rice Lasana

I found this reciepe somewhere on line, but modified it enough that I think I can say its my creation - the idea was from something I read....

Prepare 2 cups brown rice per package directions. (You need 2 cups cooked, I cooked 1 cup raw rice)

Chop 2 small onions, 1 large clove of garlic, one pepper (which every color you like) and 8 oz mushrooms. Substitue any veggies you like is a tomato sauce.

Heat a large skillet, add olive oil to coat and sautee the veggies. Once cooked add salt, pepper, dried basil, dried oregano and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Stir.

Add 1 pd ground chicken or turkey ( I used ground chicken breast). Mix into the veggies and sautee until cooked. Add a 28 oz can of core tomatoe sauce - I found one that was a store brand that was 20 calories for a 1/4 cup. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.

In a bowl beat 2 eggs, mix in 16 oz fat free cottage cheese and 8 oz fat free motzerella. Mix all togethter.

Spread some of the sauce mixture in the bottom of a 13X9 pan. Spread 1/2 the rice over that then 1/2 the cheese mixture. Top with 1/2 the remaining sauce mixture. Repeat the layers.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350. Let sit to cool - holds together really well once slightly cooled.

Enjoy!

I got this recipe from Heather's Recipe Site. For December she posted her top favorite Core recipes. I'm posting this one since it appealed to me and I thought it would be a reasonable cost meal for a family. There are other good sounding recipes there.

Texas trail beef macaroni (Core)

1 lb lean sirloin or ground turkey
1 c chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 qt beef stock (4 cups)
29 oz canned tomato sauce
1/2 c water, as needed
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
4 c whole-wheat macaroni, uncooked
FF sour cream, for topping
FF or soy cheddar cheese, for topping
Tabasco (optional, to spice it up)

In a large stockpot, brown beef with onions. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cover, and cook 10 minutes, until macaroni is tender. Top with sour cream, cheddar, and/or Tabasco.

Serves 8

Here is another good looking recipe from Heather's Recipe Site. It is one of several best of 2007 recipes.

Light and hearty Cajun chicken pasta (Core)

8 oz whole-wheat linguine or fettuccine
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
3 tsp Cajun seasoning, divided
1 tsp olive oil
1 small red pepper, thinly sliced
1 small green pepper, thinly sliced
1 (8 oz) package fresh mushrooms, sliced
4 green onions, chopped, divided
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c FF evaporated milk

COOK pasta in a large amount of boiling water until al dente. Drain; set aside.

Meanwhile, SPRINKLE chicken with 2 teaspoons of the Cajun seasoning; mix until coated evenly. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high. Add chicken to hot pan; cook 2 minutes without stirring. When the chicken is lightly browned on one side, stir it to cook the other side (leaving it to cook without stirring helps to keep it from sticking). Cook for about 5 more minutes, or until no longer pink inside. Remove from the pan; keep warm.

SPRAY pan again with the nonstick cooking spray; add the olive oil. Over medium-high heat, add peppers, mushrooms and 2 of the green onions. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in lemon pepper, basil, garlic powder, remaining teaspoon of Cajun seasoning and the salt. Add the milk, bring to a boil. Add the chicken. Stir until coated and warm. Add pasta; toss to coat. Garnish with remaining green onions.

Serves 4

Talking Tamale pie

Thanks for this recipe!!! I made this last night and it was delish!!! I made the core-n-bread for the crust instead of the polenta (mine never firms up enough). I used ground turkey and I didn't have any taco sauce so i used some salsa. I would definitely make this again.

Using the core-n-bread as a crust got me thinking...season it up with some garlic and italian seasoning and spread it out on a baking sheet, bake it and use it as a pizza crust...I may just have to try that!!

Default Cornbread (core)*

I never run out of these muffins.. as soon as I'm down to one or two I make a new batch! Really good for breakfast or a snack anytime I like them with that fake butter squeeze stuff.

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup granular splenda -OR- 8 packets splenda
2/3 cup fat free sugar free yogurt
1/3 cup nonfat sour cream
1 egg

1. Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.

2. Mix liquid ingredients together in a small bowl.

3. Gently fold the wet into the dry. Pour into a Pam-sprayed muffin tin (makes 9 nice sized muffins), or a round cake pan sprayed with Pam. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Default Root Beer Chicken

8 chicken breasts
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup Diet Root beer
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar twin
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish. Season with the salt and pepper. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken and the juices run clear.

In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes until reduced by half.

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Coat the chicken with the sauce and grill for 5 minutes per side, basting frequently with the remaining sauce. Serve with the remaining sauce for dipping.

When I did this recipe, I skipped cooking the chicken in the oven and just did it on the grill. When the chicken was almost done, I put the sauce on it. I really liked it.

Default Yummy Pork Tenderloin

2 Pork tenderloins, fat removed
1 cup splenda
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 cup lemon juice

Combine splenda, soy sauce and lemon juice in roasting pan. Add tenderloins and make sure to turn it over and over so all sides have some of the sauce on it. Cook for 45 minutes at 300, turn tenderloins over and cook another 45 minutes. The original recipe called for pineapple juice, but since it's not core I tried it with lemon juice and was really surprised how good it turned out.
