Pasta Fagiole

This is simple peasant food. Pasta with beans. It's soupy, but not many ingredients, certainly no meat. Served with lots of grated cheese.


I usually stuff the turkey but I've made this as a casserole and it works out very well. Put a little extra butter on top.
My daugther asked me for this recipe

Red Lentil Soup

Lori Draper gave me this recipe. It's very good!


This ia an easy no bake cake that will knock your socks off.

Pastina with cheddar

Kids, especially tired, worn out kids, love this comfort food.

raw sauce

tomatoes, olives, olive oil, garlic, herbs, mushrooms

Artichokes - stuffed and steamed

This is almost the way my mother made them. I use fresh bread crumbs, no cheese, a little less oil. I've had this in restaurants where they add chopped pine nuts and/or capers and lots more garlic, but I think it's better like this. These are expensive and take some effort so they were reserved for holidays when I was a kid. I guess this is truely an old family recipe.

stuffed mushrooms

These are very easy, very nice. You must like mushrooms to like this. This is a two bite appitizer with very low calories. Each one has less than 20 calories. It makes it easier to pass up the greasy, cheesy, flakey things passed around at parties.

Clam Sauce (Very simple) with Pasta

Very easy, very quick. Nutritional info includes pasta

Chicken Stew for Pot Pies

Chicken with vegetables in gravy. My family loves this in a pie crust. (I usually make this with leftover chicken from a roasted chicken)

Creamy Pablano Chicken By T. Seymour

Original Recipe. Brocolli, chicken breasts, pablanos, mushrooms in a very light creamy sauce. Serve over rice. Very nice.

chipped beef with peas and mushrooms

made it as low in calories as possible

vegan ministrone

My daughter's a vegan. I like having this soup around for her if I make a meal she can't eat. I also take it for lunch myself often.

Tina's fast chili - a basic recipe using ground turkey

about an hour from start to finish, with enough simmering time to make a side salad or corn bread muffins, clean up the prep dishes, and set the table. The cooking time is flexible - it's ready when you are (within reason). Great left over. Poblano peppers have a tiny bit of heat to them. You can sub bell or chili peppers if you'd like.

Chicken, Grape, Walnut Salad

I like to eat this over a bed of lettuce with cucumber and tomatoes on the side. Or in a sandwich.

Very Good (1 rating)
Tina S. Tuna noodle casserole

2 cans tuna, 12 oz no yolk egg noodles, 1 can soup, 1 can 2% milk.

Turkey, Peppers and Onion over Pasta

This is from Rachael Ray's stuff, but changed to Turkey and a few other changes. It's easy, fast, low fat. The leftovers make a nice lunch if you have a microwave where you eat lundh.

potato frittata

good dish for leftover poatoes

Marinara sauce

plain marinara sauce
