Alfredo Shrimp Over Wild Mushroom Fettucine

Here’s another great meal using FiberGourmet pasta – without it, the calorie count would make this meal unreachable in a 400 calories per meal lifestyle. Thank you, thank you, FiberGourmet !! The rich sauce over the mushroomy noodles was just a perfect mix for this alfredo dish. I can’t wait to try their other varieties of flavored noodles !

10 Layer Beef Hash (Crock Pot)

This is a very hearty meal – and like so many crock pot meals, a great way to put something together, be able to run errands for a few hours – – and then come home to a hot cooked meal. This is reminiscent of a stew with the nice mushroom gravy flavor 🙂

Pasta and Artichoke Hearts in Green Sauce

Another recipe that because of FiberGourmet pasta, you can eat a real satisfying portion size ! That means plenty of room for some grated parmesan cheese on top…and even room for a grilled chicken cutlet. You won’t believe the portion size when you make this. The sauce on the pasta and artichokes is very flavorful, light, well-textured and colorful – – it was surprisingly good !

3 servings
279 calories per serving

1 T oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 9 oz. packages of frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
¾ c chicken broth
¾ c water
8 oz. pasta (shells or rotini – FiberGourmet pasta recommended)
1 c frozen peas, thawed
1 T lemon juice
½ t tarragon flakes
½ t salt
½ t pepper
¼ c low fat sour cream
2 t flour
¼ c finely chopped red bell pepper

Heat the oil in a skillet, add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Then add the artichokes and cook another minute then add broth and ¾ c water and bring to a boil and reduce the heat and simmer 15 minutes or until the artichokes are tender. When done, drain any remaining liquid into a measuring cup. Cook the pasta according to package instructions and then drain but keep enough of the liquid to fill the measuring cup to ¾ c of total liquid. In a food processor mix the reserved liquid, peas, lemon juice, tarragon, salt and pepper. Process until smooth and then pour the sauce into the skillet with the artichokes and bring to a boil. Whisk together the sour cream and the flour and place in the skillet and cook 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Pour mix over the pasta and toss well. Sprinkle with the peppers and serve immediately.

Without FiberGourmet pasta, this recipe comes in at 359 calories. Not horrendous, but when it comes to pasta, I want as much as possible 🙂

Fried Rice

Shepherd’s Pie

All the potato goodness of original Shepherd’s Pie recipes, but using ground turkey instead of ground beef cuts down on a lot of calories and a lot of fat. This one dish meal is definitely a complete meal…very filling !

1/3 + 1/4 c fat free half and half
¼ c Egg Beaters

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare potatoes according to package instructions. Mash slightly then add chives, butter, 1/3 half and half and ¼ cup Egg Beaters. If they are still stiff, add up to ¼ c hot water.

Heat skillet on medium high, add turkey. Season with salt and pepper and brown it 5 minutes. Add onions and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes until veggies are softened. Add Worcestershire, onion powder, garlic powder and parsley. Reduce heat to low and cover and cook another 6 minutes. Stir and add peas and ¼ cup half and half.
