No-noodle Veggie Lasagna

0 Comment

I saw Hungry Girl Make this on one of her shows and I really wanted to try it! What a great way to have all the flavors of the lasagna without the starchy carbs. Not to mention you get a HUGE portion for only 6+ points! Super nutritious with a mixture of veggies without the starchy noodles. You will NOT miss the noodles!

For my 4 year old son, I chopped up the veggies & put it over some pasta. Of course,he ate his entire plate

Fresh Tomatoes, Basil, Garlic and seasonings make this a topper that is great for chicken, pasta, toasty bread, salad, baked potato or inside of a sandwich. You can chop it up in no time. I like that I can control the quality of the ingredients. Skip the store made stuff and try to make it yourself.

  This tasty mixture gives my food some life….try it out 🙂

I try to make a breakfast pie or Quiche on Sundays, this way I have a grab & go healthy breakfast waiting for me to take to work on Monday.  This breakfast pie is a healthier Quiche since I use hash brown potatoes as a crust.  I picked up that idea up from a cousin that is a registered dietician. This 140 calorie & low points breakfast is an easy go to while doing weight watchers or if you are trying to get your waistline ready for the summer.   Enjoy!

Poblano peppers  are just a mild chili that goes great with any type of Mexican or Southwest cooking.  It makes a wonderful vegetarian side dish to accompany my chipotle chicken with mango avocado salsa…yum!!  If you are a vegetarian or participate in meatless Mondays, this dish is great as a meal.  The prep is quick & easy, so you can prep earlier in the week and just bake it off when you want.  It last for about 3 days prepped in the fridge.  So, all you have to do is after putting cheese on the top, cover and store in fridge for later in the week.   This is a great vegetarian dish that packs in the protein!  Enjoy &  Happy Eating!  🙂
