Spinach and Tomato Pasta Salad
Very Good 4.1/5

Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.

Roasted Vegetable Soup
Very Good 4.2/5
(41 ratings)

This is such a hearty savory soup--and it's vegan! The color alone should win you over. By roasting the vegetables you get a sweet smoky smell and taste.

This recipe came from the chicken enchilada recipe I submitted earlier. I didn't need to make that many chicken enchiladas, so I made this up to make a slightly different meal. I used the remaining sauce from the chicken enchilada recipe, then added the remaining chicken and added the chicken broth.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

The 3 C's-Crunchy Carolina Chicken Salad
Very Good 4.3/5
(19 ratings)

This is a makeover of Ruby Tuesdays Carolina Chicken Salad, with a calorie intake at over 1,000, is no way for any American to eat, there has to be a better way.
I chose to add flavorful, healthier ingredients to pack this "3C Salad" with character, class, and crunch. 3C Salad is quickly becoming a family favorite for lunch.

This is a great low calorie portable lunch or dinner. On cold days I pop it into the school microwave for 15 seconds- which melts the parmesan and makes a nice warm treat! Add some jalapenos or pepper to spice it up!

When visiting my friend Shelly, we took a long walk to the local farmers market and bought a variety of fresh summer squash and carrots. Since I love pan frying veggies and garlic, I thought we'd give this a try. It was super yummy, possibly higher in fat than I would like but you can use less olive oil.
