Incredible! (1 rating)
Chili-Beef Stuffing Bake

Meal idea from StoveTop Cornbread Stuffing mix

Rhubarb Cheesecake Squares

Recipe adapted from Taste of Home. I baked crust 5-7 minutes (not in original recipe). Increased rhubarb from 1 1/2 c. to 2c. Used Neufatchatel cheese instead of full fat cream cheese. Used parchment paper in pan to make removal and slicing much easier.

Yogalicious Parfait - pumpkin

Mix and match yogurt & vitatop flavors.

Rhubarb Muffins

Wonderfully moist, flavorful muffins! I used buttermilk powder in this recipe and added it to the dry ingredients & the water to the liquid ingredients. Try using mini muffin pans to make a smaller serving size.

Penne Rigate with Sausage

We enjoy this recipe with either smoked sausage (which the nutritionals are based on) or mild Italian sausage. The smoked sausage is fully cooked, so just needs a little browning. Top with grated Parmesan cheese. Great with a slice of light garlic bread.

Shrimp Creole

I use the seasoning blend for convenience. Use fresh chopped onion, green pepper, and celery (1/2 c. to 1 c. each) if desired. Serve with hot sauce (Iike Frank's!)

Grilled Ham & Cheese

A tasty, nutritious sandwich! Add lettuce and tomato if desired.


This version adds just enough chocolate to satisfy, without adding too much to the calories.

Italian Flatbread Pizza

I've been making this as a snack lately, and decided to put it in recipe format so I don't have to enter each ingredient in the nutritional tracker.

Asparagus Chicken Lasagna

A spin on a recipe I saw online. Added chicken to the recipe. The amount of flour is 2 t. (SP didn't have flour portioned in t. so had to convert from c.) I used a cheese blend from Trader Joe's; the recipe calls for Italian Fontina which is a hard cheese unlike Danish Fontina

Mini Farfalle with Chicken, Tomatoes and Corn

This recipe is on the box of Barilla's Piccolini Mini Farfalle. I added chicken (used the Italian style Aldi's pre-cooked chicken) and Italian seasoning. The seasoning isn't listed in the ingredients because it doesn't seem to be listed in SP's database. I reduced the amount of Parmesan Cheese to 1/4c. from 1 c.

Cheerio Cookies

Sometimes you just have to enjoy a cookie or two! Nice to know the nutritionals so you can occasionally plan a treat into your day. I don't have to worry about these being around long--still have a teenager at home and two more that visit often from college. :)
