Potato and Leek Gratin
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

I've created a healthy twist on gratin by combining some highly rated recipes from allrecipes with another gratin recipe from SparkPeople that didn't have enough detail in the recipe for me to follow/didn't look creamy enough/didn't want to use egg. First result is surprisingly v. tasty!

Single-Serving California-Style Chicken Cordon Bleu
Very Good 4.3/5

This recipe takes a traditional French dish and gives it a California twist. A good portion of the fat comes from the avocado, which has mostly heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Chef Meg's Whole Grain Panzanella (Bread and Tomato Salad)
Very Good 4.6/5
(5 ratings)

Panzanella is an Italian salad that can be found on trendy bistro menus in the hot summer months. I'll share a secret with you: This salad was invented when times were tough, as a way to use up stale bread.

Essentially, you make a salad--traditionally with plenty of fresh tomatoes--toss it with a vinaigrette, then add cubed stale or toasted bread just before serving.

You can toast up a day-old baguette or fresh bread, depending on what you have in the kitchen.

The bread soaks up all the delicious juice from the tomatoes and the tangy vinaigrette. The rest of the summer-fresh vegetables add crunch and freshness.

NOTE: If you're watching your sodium intake, reduce the amount of feta or omit it.

TIP: Rub a garlic clove on the bread after toasting for instant, healthier croutons.

This is one of our family favorites! Although it's pretty low in calories and fat (for fettuccine alfredo), it has plenty of flavor. This looks really good, too, so we make it sometimes when company comes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
