Stir Fry Beef with Peppers

Adapted from Pioneer Woman Cooks blog. I doubled the sauce ingredients (kept half of the sauce aside and added at the end). Used approximately 6-8 ounces cooked rice noodles, which are included in nutritional info.

Tortellini Pasta Salad

Recipe adapted from Our Best Bites blog. I used precooked rotisserie chicken for this recipe. Please note that the dressing for this recipe is not included in the nutritional info. I did include the dressing recipe here for simplicity, but if you want accurate nutrition data, you need to add the dressing separately (it makes 1.5 cups but this recipe uses only 1 cup). Hope that makes sense.

Succulent Braised Pork

Taken from Food Network Melissa d'Arabian. Used pork roast instead of pork shoulder, trimmed of all fat. Added a lot more veggies than original recipe.

Baked Ham & Shells Pasta

Adapted from Tasty Kitchen blog. Used skim milk and light sour cream instead of full fat. Used high fiber pasta.

Mushroom Sage Pasta

Adapted from Tasty Kitchen blog. Changed original recipe from dried mushrooms to baby bellas. Used 1tsp bacon grease instead of butter and oil. Pasta is not included in nutritional info.

Butter Chicken

Adapted from Tasty Kitchen blog. Original recipe had 2 cups cream (I switched to 1 cup half-and-half). Original recipe had 15 oz can of tomato sauce; I decreased to half that amount (~1 cup).

Our Best Bites Spaghetti and Meatballs

I changed the original recipe to use 1 pound of chicken sausage instead of 1/2 pound lean ground beef and 1/2 pound Italian sausage

Sweet Pork Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw

I don't believe this has as much fat in it as the nutritional info states. I trimmed the roast pretty darn well, and there's just no way there is that much fat per serving.
