Spaghetti Carbonara
Very Good 4.8/5
(6 ratings)

Love this dish for its short cooking time. Just add a green salad or seasonal vegetable and the meal is complete. Included are some variations to keep the recipe interesting in case you find yourself making it over and over again.

Notes: The heat from the hot pasta partly cooks the eggs. If you are concerned about eating raw or undercooked eggs, use 1/2 cup pasteurized eggs in lieu of fresh.

Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole
Good 3.8/5

A re-working of the traditional Thanksgiving side dish. Extra Mushrooms and garlic hide the fact that you are using low-fat dairy products.

Love pumpkin pie? Hate the guilt? The preservatives of the store made brands? This is an easy to make and bake pumpkin pie, best of all using fat free milk, egg whites, and low fat pie crust cut the calories and fat more than in half! This tastes great and is excellent with fat free cool whip!!! Feel free to make it full fat if you dare, or add a little bit more spices for more of kick. Great for thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

I don't like fish much, but I love this baked tilapia recipe! I think the sauce can be used with other fish/seafood.
