This is a variation of a dish I had at a lovely little Italian restaraunt. The broth adds the background flavor, but each component of the dish stands out as its own unique flavor, with no flavor being stronger than the rest.
Note: I cooked my beans in the crockpot with a hambone. I then used some of that broth and some of the water I boiled my sausage in. I have no idea how many calories this adds as I could not find the nutritional information. This will feed 4 hefty servings, or 8 as a light dinner. Also, I used ditalini pasta which are small tubes, but any small pasta should work fine. It may seem like a lot of work, but if you cook the beans in the crockpot and forget about them, there is really only 20 minutes of prep and cook time.
Craving something Cajun? This not too spicy dish, tastes like it takes a long time to cook, but you can be eating in 40 minutes or less. Add a salad and small slice of crusty, hot french bread and you have a delicious, filling meal for under 700 calories that your guests won't know is healthy. Make changes and substitutes as you like, just share them because we might like them too.
(Note: Pasta shown in picture is two servings.)
This reminds me of lasagna more than pizza but it is tasty, somewhat healthy with a salad and fills the craving for something warm, cheesy and gooey. It is very filling with a nice big salad. You can use any toppings sauce you like, just make sure you have some sort of ground meat for the base. I like my veggies on top of the cheese so they retain their crispness.
I had these once at a Greek restaurant and they were too salty. I made them at home and they are so much better. They're great as a side dish with Greek grilled pork, cucumber-yogurt sauce, salad and whole wheat toasted pita. I also like to just eat a huge bowl as a meal when I'm rushed. The recipe is for one, so just multiply for extra servings.
