2½ cups eggplant, peeled and diced
1 zucchini, julienned
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 can (14.5 ounces) stewed tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed
4 ounces fettuccine, cooked

In a heavy nonstick skillet, sauté eggplant and zucchini in hot oil over medium-high heat until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat. Add stewed tomatoes and red pepper flakes. Simmer for 5 minutes. Serve over hot fettuccine.

I also like to add fresh basil and oregano!  It’s also good with a little garlic.  If you want, add a can of tomato paste to give it a little more substance.  I’ve eaten this every night this week…so good!!

Wow ladies!

Ok I have a dish but it isn’t complicated to make at all- and I have no idea what to call it.. Nor do I know how to do a nutrition breakdown on it. Sorry!

Pasta lover’s spinach special? (Ingredients: "swirly" pasta, small carton of halved cherry tomatoe, minced garlic, one bag of spinach, and italian sausage or meat of choice or none if preferred, and parmesan cheese)

Get a big stir-fry skillet 

Heat vegetable oil

Cook cherry tomatoes and minced garlic together until a nice little sauce forms.

Add an entire bag of spinach (it will shrink as it cooks obviously)

Once the spinach is thoroughly cooked  (Obviously boil water and cook pasta while prepping the rest of the dish) Add in cooked pasta (I get mine from trader joes, it’s a healthy pasta made from veggies).

Add salt and pepper to personal liking.

 Add any other veggies of your choice (small corn cobs, olives, green/red bell peppers- I usually keep it simple though and not add to much else to this dish.)

Add meat of choice- this is more of an italian type dish- so I stick with either meatballs or italian sausage chopped (my personal favorite.) 

Then serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese! (You can also add the parmesan cheese while cooking to make the sauces food a little thicker… I usually grate it while cooking.)

This takes about twenty-thirty minutes to make! It is light, fresh tasting and not heavy at all! I hope you like it too. It will easily serve 4-6 people (it pairs well with wine) and makes for a great light lunch.

Last month’s Real Simple magazine had some wonderful recipes for lighter comfort foods. They still wouldn’t be ULTRA healthy, but things like mac-n-cheese with cauliflower are a great, healthiER way to splurge and enjoy some comfort food! 🙂

I’ll post my favorites when I get home today!

 i got this recipe from my sister that trys to sneak healthy food into her little boys food that she makes, but its a really good recipe if your dieting and you still need a sweet snack.

 2 cups oats

1/3 cup oil or to make it healthier i used applesauce

3 ripe bananas

1 teaspoon vanilla

and you can either add some raisins or to make it a litte sweet a few chocolate chips

I also added some spices so it didnt taste so bland like cinnamon and allspice

let the dough set for 15 min, then drop dough on cookie sheet, 350 degrees for 20 minutes

Enjoy!
