World's Best Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Very Good 4.3/5
(50 ratings)
World's Best Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This is seriously the world's best spinach and artichoke dip! It's creamy and fairly low fat. I use low fat cream cheese, but you could use fat free. This slimmed down version of your favorite dip is easy to make--and it's light enough for you to load up on it! This can also become a decadent pasta sauce. (As a sauce, it makes 10 servings. You might need to thin it a bit with cooking water from the pasta.)

Skinny Cheese Fondue

This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture! Submitted by STEPFANIER

SP_Stepf's Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

Spruce up any salad with this creamy dressing! It's spicy but not at all hot! Drizzle over salads, grilled chicken or fish. Use in place of sour cream on tacos or use as base for a pasta salad. Submitted by STEPFANIER

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices. Submitted by STEPFANIER

Heart Healthy Pasta Bake
Very Good 4.8/5
(5 ratings)
Heart Healthy Pasta Bake

This is a delicious alternative to lasagna, and a more "user-friendly" version of spaghetti with sauce. Baking the sauce into the pasta makes it slightly less messy for kids, and there's no long skinny noodles to gag on if they aren't cut properly. The mozzarella cheese adds calcium, and using multigrain pasta with omega 3's makes this dish oh-so-healthy!
Oh, and for all you vegetarians: check out the protein in a single cup of this delicious pasta dish!Submitted by MELISSABRENNAN

Light Chinese Chicken Salads
Very Good 4.3/5
(20 ratings)
Light Chinese Chicken Salads

UPDATED: Added the ramen and the almonds. Still a low-fat winner. Note that you don't use the ramen seasoning packet, so the sodium count is incorrect. Thanks for all the awesome reviews!

I'm sure no one in China actually eats anything like this, but we thank them for their culinary contribution of the soy-sesame-ginger-chile combo, which makes anything delicious. Submitted by FORMFITATX
