"So Low" Chicken Cordon Bleu

I found a really low-calorie recipe for Chicken Kiev here (thanks to BUSSMOM for that), and managed to turn it into a Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe and still shave off calories by making very judicious ingredient choices.

Lo Carb Pancake Crepes a la Jeannette

I found the base recipe for this on another site, but made some changes and additions -- and ended up with a tasty result that's even lower in calories than the original. Although I haven't tried it, you could probably make this a vegan dish by using egg and butter substitutes.

Penne with Butternut Squash and Sage Pesto w/Almonds

This recipe comes from the "Skinny Bitch in the Kitch" cookbook. The recipes for the pasta and the pesto are given separately in the book, but I've combined them here to calculate the nutritional information for the entire recipe. Furthermore, the book says this makes four servings... but when I divided it up that way, the portions were HUGE! I got 8 nice-size meal portions from this, so that's how I've got the nutritional info calculated.

Fresh Mushroom Cutlets with Mornay Sauce

Delicious vegetarian recipe my husband found on I assume that the calorie/fat content of this dish could be reduced further by using lower-fat ingredients (such as reduced-fat cheddar cheese).

Pumpkin Pudding Parfait

Single-serving dessert recipe (which can obviously be multiplied for more servings), taken from Lisa Lillien's "Hungry Girl 200 Under 200" cookbook.

Ginger Buffalo Curry (Slow Cooker Version)

Serves 10; Season this distinctive curry with a fresh blend according to this recipe. Or use ready-made curry powder as a time saver.

Tal's On-the-Fly Pasta Sauce

My 15-year-old son wanted to make a fresh, healthy lunch for family and company one Sunday. Unfortunately, I, um... came home with a hangover Saturday night, and couldn't get my rear in gear Sunday morning to do some proper grocery shopping.

Tal (my son) had just bought some lovely garlic-parsley pasta at a farmer's market the day before; this is the recipe we came up with to create a lovely, if slightly unusual, pasta sauce with the ingredients we had on hand. We had a lot of people to feed; you can cut the recipe in half, or even go one-forth, for a more reasonable family meal batch.

Rachel Ray's Mile High Lasagna (Lasagne)

It looks as though no one else has entered Ms. Ray's recipe for this dish into the database here -- probably because it's not really a low-cal, low-fat dish. But my husband made it for dinner the other night, and since I had to run it through the calculator anyway, here it is.
