An easy twist on a family favorite! Substitute rotini or shells for the macaroni. You can also add veggies ~ mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli....lots of variations!
This is my variation of another recipe I found here on Spark. Serve cold or warm. I like to top mine with a tablespoon or so of feta cheese (not included in nutritional info). Cooking time is for pasta ~ plan for at least 4 hours refrigeration before serving if you want to serve it cold!
Your friends will never know the difference!
A perfect meal for hot summer days! Very adaptable ~ mix and match your veggies and proteins for endless variety! Even better the next day after the flavors have a chance to blend.

This hearty lasagna is easy enough to throw together any day of the week! Made lighter and healthier by using low-fat cheeses and whole grain pasta.

A drizzle of olive oil and a little cinnamon sugar combine to make a sweet glaze on these yummy fries!

The tangy sauce on these chops is good with rice & stir-fried veggies, so sometimes I double the sauce ingredients. This recipe also works well with chicken.
This crustless quiche-like dish is perfect for brunch or a light dinner. Serve with a mixed greens salad. You can save even more calories/fat by using light wheat bread and 2% cheese, but the nutritional info is based on regular. You can change the eggs/egg substitute ratio to suit you, also. 1/4 c. substitute = 1 egg.
