Pasta with Spinach Pesto Sauce

Slightly altered from the original recipe at http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pasta-with-Sp
inach-Pesto-Sauce/Detail.aspx?prop24=etaf

Turkish Pide Base

I use this recipe to make a base for a filled Turkish pide. Basically, make the base and roll it into an oval shape. Choose a filling, usually meat & stir fried veggies or cheese. Spread your choice of filling on the pide and then fold up about 1cm all along the sides, pulling them together at the tips.

In the pictured pide, I cut up zucchini, eggplant, and onion and sauteed with garlic and a vegetarian ground-beef substitute. Then mixed tomato sauce and cottage cheese in to create the filling.

This recipe can easily be vegan if you use olive oil or just forgo the egg used to brown the pide, and then use vegan ingredients.

My recipe assumes using 80-calorie-per-slice bread, non fat milk, a whole egg, and whole wheat flour. Using other ingredients may alter the nutritional information.

Vegetarian Sun Dried Tomato, Feta, & Spinach Stuffed Bell Peppers

These peppers are AWESOME. The filling is actually more than what fits in the peppers, but it tastes wonderful warmed up in a bowl. So one pepper half is probably actually around 275 calories or so...serve with a green salad or some brown rice on the side.

Spinach & Feta Muffins

These delicious savory muffins make a great side to scrambled eggs in the morning, or as a roll with salad or soup for lunch or dinner.

Yummy, rich, and just enough to fix the craving for only about 70 calories!

Quiche Lorraine Scones

These are not particularly healthy in any way, but they are delicious and while the calorie count is high, you get a serving big enough to serve as a lunch treat next to a healthier soup or salad. Thanks to BrownEyedBaker.com for sharing the original recipe.

Butter-Free Whole Wheat Oatmeal Muffins

Add crushed pineapple, nuts, coconut, or whatever your heart desires to add some more flavor to these soft, tasty muffins. Adapted from a recipe entered by Jojomke.

Vegetarian Mexican Rice Soup

Serve with a little fat free sour cream, crushed tortilla chips, and cheese on top for great flavor! You could also top with a few slices of avocado. I believe that this soup is also vegan, as long as it's made with vegetable broth.

88Cal Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

These are adapted from my 100 Cal Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies by replacing half the butter with applesauce and the egg with two egg whites. It changes the consistency a bit and makes them more muffin or bar like....definitely still tasty, but not a cookie anymore!

Cool No-Cook Oatmeal

Tasty and cool, full of fiber and protein, great for hot weather! Similar to another recipe I found on the site, but with added brown sugar and the right calorie content.
