Now place on slice on top of the other slice with all the fixings in the middle.

Egg, feta, tomato mini quiches

I saw this and was inspired to come up with my own recipe :)

I ate the whole serving and loved it!

Egg, feta, tomato mini quiches 5pp or Simply Filling plus whatever cheese you use

1 egg
2 egg whites
1 oz feta cheese crumbled or goat cheese
5 fresh basil leaves finely sliced although you could use dried
1 1/2 cocktail size tomatoes or you could use roma or even large cherry tomatoes
sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Beat the egg and the egg whites then add the crumbled cheese and the basil, salt, pepper.
I used parchment paper in muffin tins which are amazing because food never sticks to them but you could use oil.
Fill 3 muffin tins about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way full.
Place 1/2 piece of the cocktail tomatoes into each muffin tin.

I baked mine in my toaster oven at 375 for 23 minutes. When they are puffed up and slightly brown they are done :)

Cold spaghetti pasta salad

Thanks to Thea-Lee Stottele for sharing her recipe!

Depending on your pasta and your sauces if  you're doing sf you'd just have to count the parmesan cheese and the shredded cheddar unless it's fat free.

So if  you use whole wheat pasta, pasta sauce with no sugar, fat free Italian dressing, parmesan cheese and light shredded cheddar cheese it would be Simply Filling + 1pp.

Or for points plus I counted 5pp for 1 cup and bulked it up by adding 1 cup of steamed broccoli that I'd cooled before adding in. A very filling lunch! Next time I might add mushrooms and peppers :)

Cold spaghetti pasta salad Makes 5x 1 cup servings 

5 oz of whole wheat thin spaghetti/spaghettini noodles cooked el dante
1/2 jar of pasta sauce I used a blue menu one
1/3c fat free Italian dressing I lowered the amount from the original recipe
1/4c parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4c chopped red onion
1/4c light shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half
The original recipe also called for olives which I left out because of sodium

Break up your pasta before cooking and add to boiling water. Cook until just done. Drain pasta and put into large bowl. Add all other ingredients. Toss and put into the fridge for at least 2 hours I put it in overnight. Stir it up before serving.

For Simply Filling the only ingredients I would count would be the tortellini and parmesan cheese if you choose put it on. Points depend on which tortellini you buy.

president's choice blue menu lean Italian meatballs 24 or 4 per serving
2 tsp olive oil
2 stalks of celery chopped
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 large carrot peeled and I used my julienne peeler to shred it
2x 900 ml or 30oz boxes of lower sodium chicken broth
100g olivieri tortellini three cheese
3 cups of baby spinach torn

Melt butter then saute celery, onion, carrot and garlic until veggies are beginning to soften.
Add broth and increase temperature until boiling.
Reduce heat and add the meatballs and the tortellini.
Simmer for 7-8 minutes or according to directions on your tortellini.
Add the baby spinach and simmer for a minute or two.

Cheesy broccoli potatoes

Thanks again to Thea-Lee Stottele for the inspiration :)

I have been doing points plus for the last week or two and I'm not sure how much longer but for right now I will be posting a few recipes with points plus that are not simply filling.

Cheesy broccoli potatoes 6 big servings 6pp/serving

1 pkg shredded raw potatoes
1/3c + 1 tbsp I used becel calorie reduced pro active margarine
1 can reduced fat cream of broccoli soup
1 onion chopped
1/2c fat free or light sour cream
1 1/2c shredded light cheddar cheese
I pkg of broccoli I just bought a bag of fresh cut broccoli

Mix the soup, the margarine and the sour cream together. Add the potatoes, 1 cup of the cheese, the onion and the broccoli and mix together.

Spray a 9x11 pan with non stick spray. Pour the mixture in and spread out. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2c of light cheese on top. Put into a 375 oven for 45 minutes then pop under the broiler for a couple of minutes if  you want to brown it up.




Chicken orzo soup

I was given permission by Thea-Lee Stottle

Chicken orzo soup makes 8x1 cup servings
Simply filling if you use chicken breast an whole wheat orzo or 3pp for 1 cup

2 cups of cooked chicken or turkey
2 x 32oz containers of fat free low sodium chicken broth or a chicken carcass boiled for the broth
4oz or 1/2 cup of uncooked orzo pasta
1 12oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1/4c flour to thicken
1 chopped onion
1 celery stalk chopped
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
1 tbsp dried rosemary
Check the flavor and add chicken bouillion if needed. I didn't need it

Now you can make this in a pan or do what I did and throw everything in the crockpot except the orzo put that in 30 minutes before you want it ready :)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours
Doesn't show in the picture but it's got loads of veggies/chicken and pasta!
