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!
