Super Easy, Low Calorie Chicken Caesar Salad Stuffed Shells

Super Easy, Low Calorie Chicken Caesar Salad Stuffed Shells by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

Most of us love Caesar salad. Add chicken and tomatoes to it and stuff into jumbo pasta shells and it becomes a really fun and delectable appetizer or light meal! Once the pasta is cooked, this dish comes together in minutes because I’m using cooked chicken and a store bought light Caesar dressing! Each skinny shell has just 58…

NUTTY flourless cookie CRISPS < Brutti ma Buoni >

NUTTY flourless cookie CRISPS < Brutti ma Buoni > by Foodessa

Got a few egg whites left over from a recipe? Here's a super easy crispy, flourless cookie called < Brutti ma Buoni >. It's an Italian saying...loosely translated as ugly looking (not really) but yummy. Originally made with roasted hazelnuts...however, re-created to include roasted almonds instead. I also reduced much of the…

Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini by Denise Sherin

I had this dish at a local diner and loved it. So I recreated it at home it's an easy tasty dish. It looks like you spent a lot of time making it and it comes together so easily. In this picture I used just zucchini but I have made it with summer squash or a mix of both, whatever I have on hand, and it's great.

Olive tapenade

Olive tapenade by Shawnna and Davide Busetti

Olive Tapenade is a staple at my house. It is delicious to pull out as an impromptu happy hour snack, and it's always great to set out when company is coming. The olive tapenade keeps well in the refrigerator for at least a week, but rarely lasts that long at my house. I serve the tapenade in a small bowl, then on the side to scoop it…

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce by Denise Sherin

I love homemade tomato sauce, it's so much better than jarred sauce. As a summer side dish I add sauteed zucchini, it's so yummy. I recently served it as a side with baked cod and we wound up putting it right over the fish it was terrific!

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan by Mihir Shah

Wonderful and lighter alternative to baked eggplant Parmesan and wonderful for summer or fall nights. I use canned pasta sauce (basil if you have it).
