Nancy's Tilapia (or Chicken or Veal) Piccata
Very Good 4.8/5
(45 ratings)

This is my own creation. Sweet, mild, healthy, non-fishy tilapia is complimented by lemon, capers, butter, broth, and white wine in this satisfying and deceptively easy meal. I like my piccata lemony with touches of onion, garlic, and capers to round out the taste. This is a basic recipe for 1 lb. of filets. Please reduce this recipe accordingly if you use fewer filets, unless you want the leftunders as lunch or another dinner, like I do, if all is not eaten during the first go-‘round. I am a strong believer in flexibility, so experiment and substitute most any flaky white fish, pounded-flat veal or chicken cutlets, according to your creativity, pantry contents, budget, ingredient-availability, and personal tastes. I would greatly appreciate your feedback on this recipe, including any suggestions, comments, and input. Thank you for reading and trying this recipe! SparkPeople rocks my world!

Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup
Very Good 4.8/5
(255 ratings)

This meal comes together pretty fast. It's a very hearty meal, that goes great with a salad.
It's a versatile recipe in that you can add additional vegetables or even a can of drained and rinsed cannelini beans, for more protein.

Chicken Fajita Stuffed Peppers
Very Good 4.4/5

Who says you have to serve fajitas in a flour tortilla? Instead of serving peppers in the fajitas, I serve fajitas in a roasted pepper!
