Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers

A favorite of mine, that is both sweet and spicy! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Pre heat oven 375 Useย  5-6 large Cubanelle peppers and throw them in pan with olive oil on high heat and sear all over. Set aside to cool off…..Chop up one onion , 4 garlic cloves and olive oil…Cook 4 min. Add in ground chicken, cook until almost cooked thru. Add in 1 cup brown rice, 1/2 black beans, and 1 can of Rotelle tomatos. Heat thru and set aside. Cut thu peppers on one side and clean out the seeds. Spread 1-2 tbsp of low fat – fat free cream cheese. Stuff the stuffing in ๐Ÿ™‚ Place in baking dish. Top with reduced fat cheddar cheese. Bake for 20 min. Top with low fat sour cream and enjoy! I think I might use the leftover stuffing to make burritos another nite this week.

Dinner Tonite Vegetarian Style

Cucurbita pepo (spaghetti squash). Location: M...

The Monday rush is over! Wanted to make a vegetarian dish tonight to give my body a break. I could eat like a vegetarian every day ( with the exception of eggs) and not miss the meat. Its nice to give the body a break, it reduces inflammation and really allows your digestive system to regulate… Well any whoo..I used myย  Spaghetti Squash Casserole recipe in mind..but you know minus the meat. I have a ton of veggies from the weekend when making my Turkey Vegetable Soup…So I cooked down the tomatoes first with onions and garlic, italian seasoning , salt and pepper for about 10 mins. and thenย  threw it into the food processor and gave it a good whirl. I let it sit there for a bit while I chopped up zucchini, squash, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and carrots. I cut some corners by cooking the spaghetti squash in the microwave, sliced in half and face down with a 1/2 cup of water. Nuked it for about 12 -15 minutes. When done removed the water and scooped out the squash int o the baking dish I used to cook it in. While it was cooking, I cooked the vegetable mixture that I chopped up and added in some Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and 1 tsp red pepper flakes. I also had a bag of Soy crumbles on hand that I added to the mix.Cooked on the stove top for about 8 min. Then I poured on the tomato sauce I made in the food processor. Added it to the top of the spaghetti squash in the baking dish andย  topped with 2% Mozzarella cheese.ย  Baked for 20 min at 375…Very good and filling with all the vegetables! I just love clean and fresh eating! It makes awesome leftovers too ๐Ÿ™‚

Its much like my recipe for Italian Style Spaghetti Squash Casserole that I use often, but this time I pretty much used ” everything but the kitchen sink” recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

Green Bean Almondine Salad

Used the last of the Green Bean Almondine from Thanksgiving and added it to a big fresh green salad.PS you can add Blue Cheese crumbles too ๐Ÿ™‚

Leftover Holiday Turkey to Turkey Vegetable Soup

The last of the turkey is going into the Crock Pot to make a delicious and healthy soup today! I shredded the leftover turkey meat and stuffed a leg and two wings into the pot.ย  I added zucchini, yellow squash, celery, carrots, green beans and onions. A Can of diced tomatoes, 4 cups fat free low sodium chicken broth, 4 cups water, 1 tbsp Italian seasoning, 2 bay leafs, 1 tsp red pepper flakes,1 tsp nutmeg, salt and pepper. Later, I’ll remove the turkey bones and skin and add a cup of brown rice pasta right towards the end. Then this soup will sit over nite in fridge and be our lunch for the next couple of days at work! ๐Ÿ™‚

Turkey Swiss Burgers with Mushrooms and Onions
