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

We're serious about the spice in this recipe. Whole-grain pasta and tender shrimp pair perfectly with a luxuriously rich, piquant sauce.

Herbed Bulgur and Lentil Salad
Very Good 4.3/5
(200 ratings)

This recipe is part of "The SparkPeople Cookbook." Order your copy today! This salad is even better the longer it sits in the fridge, so we love to make a big batch of it and eat it throughout the week.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Tropical Grilled Chicken
Very Good 4.5/5
(149 ratings)

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.

Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(231 ratings)

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Single-Serving California-Style Chicken Cordon Bleu
Very Good 4.3/5
(61 ratings)

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.
