Lasagna Turkey Bolognese
Very Good 4.4/5
(58 ratings)

My family loves pasta. It's comfort food on cold Minnesota days and makes a great Sunday family dinner. But eating at Olive Garden can be a challenge when you're trying to watch your weight, so we make this healthy version at home instead. I love how simple it is - you don't have to cook the noodles first, just put them in dry and they cook while it's baking. Leftovers make great lunches and can even be frozen in single-serve container for future use.

Smokehouse Chicken (unchained recipe contest!)
Very Good 4.2/5
(101 ratings)

This is my absolute favorite dish from Ruby Tuesday so I had to find a way to make it over. Its called the smokehouse chicken and it is a favorite by many! This delicious dish is high in fat and calories if ordered from the restaurant so I came up with a healthier, guilt free version that has become a favorite in my household!

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Very Good 4.1/5
(37 ratings)

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!

Very Good 4.4/5

I bought a Papa Murphy Mediterrean Pizza and decided to make it myself with less fat and calories! We LOVE pizza and become very fond of the Alfredo kind, it is the BEST! It makes eating spinach a wonderful treat!

Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.0/5
(69 ratings)

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.

Skinny Chicken Philly Cheese Sub
Very Good 4.1/5
(74 ratings)

Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.

Hawaiian Pizza: 'SparkRecipes Un-Chained' Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.4/5
(77 ratings)

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the sweet sauce at Papa John's is my all-time favorite. My viewpoint is, if you're going to make it at home, don't make it "just as good," make it better! So I'm remaking a medium Papa John's pie with pineapple, onion and bacon(BACON!!!). Fresh homemade sauce and premium ingredients make this recipe more than worth the calories, and still trimmer than the fast food original!

Crunchwrap Super-Supreme: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Good 3.8/5
(33 ratings)

This recipe was a finalist in the SparkPeople Un-Chained Recipe Contest!

I chose to re-make the Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell because Taco Bell used to be one of my favorite fast food restaurants. Also, it is still my boyfriend's favorite fast food chain and nearly every time he goes there, he will order a crunchwrap supreme.

The funny thing is that most Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes are fairly simple to make... so I knew that it would be fun, delicious, and not too challenging to re-make this item!
