This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(282 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Linguine with Spicy Shrimp
Very Good 4.4/5

Tabbouleh salad with chickpeas
(no ratings)

This is based on a recipe I found online some time ago, but now I just prepare it from memory. Tabbouleh traditionally calls for both fresh parsley and mint, but since mint is hard to find at my local stores for some reason, I just omit it. It's still delicious. By all means, add about 1/4 cup finely chopped if you can get it. Finally, I think the final sodium content is lower than the calculations say because I do rinse the beans.
