Less fat and calories than a traditional Macaroni salad. I use pasta shells instead of Macaroni to make more servings. Great for family gatherings or a picnick. I use a food processor to chop up all the veggies to save time. I refregerate over night to let the liquid absorb and it tastes better.Submitted by WEEDENMJ
This is a simple one dish meal I make often, low in calories and fat. It can be adjusted easily to make more for your family size. Also different veggies can be used. Sometimes I use zucchinni in place of the broccoli, or mixed veggie stir fry. You can omit the cheese for less fat.Submitted by WEEDENMJ
Egg salad with lots of veggies. 12g of fat and 179 calories per serving. Can make with fat free mayo for less fat and calories but it is not to bad on its own. Serve on the cabbage or with your choice of bread, the cabbage is included in the calorie countSubmitted by WEEDENMJ

A good lowfat lasgna with lots of veggies and protein Takes a bit of time but well worth it. I like to make it a day ahead and reheat it the next day to let the flavors really meld together.Submitted by WEEDENMJ
My fave enchiladas to make that my family absolutly loves. Not to bad in fat and calories for the ingredients used to make the dish. I usually save some of the sauce to mix with whole grain white rice to serve on the side. This dish takes some time to make but the family will surely love it.Submitted by WEEDENMJ
A cucumber with veggie salad, my mom said it is a german dish my grandma use to make. I americanized it a bit by adding a few tbsp of italian dressing. It seems like an odd combo of ingredients but tastes delishSubmitted by WEEDENMJ
