Burritos are a great way to stretch a pound of meat to feed 6, avoiding extra fat and calories. Good for the waistline and the wallet, too!
Chicken Sausage Chili Burrito
Caprese Girasoli Pasta
Transport yourself to Italy with this exquisite, fine Italian cheese-stuffed fresh pasta dish. Topped with fresh basil and with a zesty tomato garlic-studded sauce, made with our exceptional tomatoes harvested near Naples, it’s dazzling enough for company yet takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.
Chicken, Potato and Sweet Pea Mash
Try this once your baby is ready to go beyond puréed baby food. Protein, starch and vegetable make it a balanced meal.
Pasta and sauce is a childhood staple; for baby’s first taste, try this version the whole family can enjoy. Use a slotted spoon to pull out al dente pasta for the adults to eat, and cook the rest of the pasta until it is soft for baby.
Carrot and Pea Soup
This toddler-friendly recipe makes enough for parents to enjoy too. Jazz up the adults’ bowls with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, freshly ground black pepper and shredded Cheddar cheese.
Grilled Marinated Portobello Sandwiches with Avocado
Portobello caps have a wonderfully meaty texture when grilled, making this a wonderful main course alternative if you’re trying to eat meatless occasionally. If you have extra time, let the caps marinate in the vinegar a while before grilling; if you’re pressed for time, you can grill them right away.
Penne with Eggplant Sauce
A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
We gave normally evil pasta carbonara a healthy remake, by substituting turkey bacon, omitting the cream and using omega eggs and pasta. Still indulgent, but an indulgence you can afford on a regular basis!
South of the Border Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Corn and bean salsa gives this grilled cheese a Tex-Mex twist. Plant sterols have been shown to decrease your LDL cholesterol (the bad one) by an average of 10%.
Sausage & Bean Vegetable Soup
A stick-to-the-ribs meal-in-a-bowl. If you’d like, stir in a couple of spoonfuls of freshly chopped herbs, such as parsley, coriander or dill, just before serving.
