Healthier Eggplant Parmesan II

Rating: 4.56 stars
I like this recipe because it is not fried and very tasty. I like to make it healthier by using whole wheat breadcrumbs and reducing the amount of fat. Also, by using mostly egg-whites instead of whole eggs I am able to reduce the cholesterol level.

Healthier Baked Ziti I

I love pasta but it is not always the healthiest thing to have for dinner. To make this one a little less guilty, I use turkey and add a carrot to the sauce. So tasty!

Sweet Potato Chicken Casserole

Rating: 3.58 stars
This casserole is the tastiest chicken dish that I have ever tasted. The sweet potato adds an interesting addition to the chicken, alternatively butternut squash can be used in its place. Everyone I have ever cooked this casserole for has loved it! Serve with rice or mashed potato with fresh, crisp green vegetables.

Spicy Mexican Style Zucchini Casserole

This is a vegetarian version of the traditional French dish. If you are home while this is cooking, give the beans a stir every couple of hours.
