Decided to try a tomato Alfredo sauce so my whole family would like it. Sauce tastes great...have to see how it is after cooking!

This is our family favorite with a twist...butternut squash. If you like thicker soup, like creamy, add some instant potatoes after it's mostly finished cooking. Excellent with cheese on top too.

This is our favorite -- we gave up on the noodles cause they always seemed to get soggy. Love it with rice. We use wild rice sometimes, that's great too. You can pretty much add whatever you want, it's a great left-over soup.

This is great, and no meat -- though there was some in the sauce. I buy whatever's on sale, so, the sauce varies with the pan. This makes two big 9x13 pans. We did one pan with the mushrooms and one without. Enjoy!

We love alfredo sauce, but it's sooo high in fat made the normal way. I found a recipe that makes it with cream cheese and it turns out really good. My daughter-in-law even likes it, and she doesn't like alfredo. ;) Enjoy!

I saw a recipe that had shrimp in the mac n cheese and wanted to try it. The greek yogurt makes it sooo creamy!

This is my favorite soup. I order it every time we go there. I don't like the salad because they put too much dressing on them, but anyway -- I've used the links though this time I used the tube that you fry up - you can do regular Italian sausage too, I was trying to cut the fat.

These are a family favorite at Christmas, and I knew I would need to lighten them up if I wanted to eat them without guilt. The cottage cheese was an experiment, and they turned out really good! I used less cheese than I usually do, and could probably do with less chicken soup, but it turned out great. Definitely not something you'd eat a lot of though!

This is the best. I deleted the other recipe because this turned out so much better. Half n half is definitely the best way to go, especially fat free.

Yummy! Usually just do Navy Bean soup, decided to switch it up today, and it turned out excellent. Makes enough for a crowd.

Family low fat chicken enchiladas
Very Good 4.7/5

This is a big family favorite! Use fat free cheese to really bring the fat down. I was tempted to use corn tortillas, but they're not quite the same.

I never would have put these ingredients together, but it's really good! I make the rice ahead of time in broth, which adds to the protein factor. You could make it with vegetable broth or water to make it vegetarian. I got this recipe from 101cookbooks.com - it's adapted from hers. (basically 3 times her recipe)

This is a family favorite around here so I am glad it is reasonable in the cal department with out any changes though I should warn you one cup just isn't enough so make sure you have enough room for at least two. You can replace chicken broth with water to reduce cals more but be warned you lose some of the flavour.
