    Di - Mexican lasagna or casserole as my BF and I call it is my ABSOLUTE fav! I love adding corn kernals to it and a verde sauce and maybe some light sour cream. Mmmm!

        Paleo / Primal /Low carb Enchiladas

        DH and I opened up a crossfit gym, so we are trying to eat "paleo" which is basically, meat, veggies, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, no sugar.

        Quick and easy! brown some grassfed beef or chicken. Add some fajita seasoning. Get a can of enchilada sauce and mix it into the chicken or beef. Then add onions, green, red, and yellow peppers. (if you dont have the sauce, it is easy to make too - just olive oil, tomato sauce, basil, cumin, chili powder, garlic and chicken stock)

        In a separate pan, make an eggwhite omlette, filling it with the meat and sauce mixture. roll and put into a casserole dish. Keep going until you fill up the dish.

        Dump the rest of them mixture over the top. Add some extra sauce to make it juicy. Add cumin and cilantro over the top. You can add cheese if you want. Put in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Yummy and quick!

        PS - the "tortilla" will probably fall apart all over the place until you get good at it. No worries, just stick it in the dish and smoosh it together. It tastes the same i promise.

          I got this recipe out of this cookbook that I got from my bridal shower: Amazon.com: Easy Skillet Meals Good Housekeeping Favorite Recipes: Delicious One-Dish Cooking (Favorite Good Housekeeping Recipes) (9781588162076): The Editors of Good Housekeeping: Books

          1lb chicken
          2 ounces thinly slice part skim mozzarella
          2 ounces thinly sliced ham
          1 5-6ounce package of fresh spinach
          1 tbps butter
          ½ cup reduced fat chicken broth
          2 tbps balsamic vinegar
          1/8 tsp black pepper

          You melt the butter in the pan, cook the chicken on Med-High for 6 minutes and med for 6mins on other side. Combine broth, vinegar, and pepper and add to chicken in pan at med-high heat and cook for one minute. After minute, remove from heat, add 1 slice ham and one slice cheese to each chicken breast and cover pan for 3 minutes. Serve over fresh spinach.

          It was really good and only was 5pts per serving and VERY filling.

                      Just saw this and thought of you ladies, healthier lasagna with the nutrition facts and everything!

                      Rehab Lasagna

                      Ingredients:

                      9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
                      1 tablespoon olive oil
                      1 medium onion, chopped
                      3 cloves garlic, minced
                      1 pound button mushrooms, sliced
                      3 medium zucchini, sliced
                      1 medium eggplant, sliced
                      2 (28 oz.) cans crushed tomatoes
                      1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
                      1 teaspoon dried basil
                      1 teaspoon dried parsley
                      1 teaspoon dried oregano
                      1/2 teaspoon salt
                      1/2 teaspoon black pepper
                      16 ounces part-skim ricotta cheese
                      1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
                      1 cup grated mozzarella cheese


                      Instructions:
                      1. Prepare the lasagna noodles according to directions. When cooked through, set aside on paper towels to dry.
                      2. Saut© the onions and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms, zucchini and eggplant, and cook until tender. Mix in the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. Season with spices. Simmer for five to 10 minutes.
                      3. In a small bowl mix together the ricotta and Parmesan cheeses.
                      4. Evenly coat the bottom of a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish with about a half cup of the sauce. Remove another half-cup of the sauce and set aside.
                      5. To assemble the lasagna: Top the sauce in the baking dish with an even layer of noodles, cutting to fit the pan if necessary. Spread half of the cheese mixture over the lasagna noodles. Then layer with half of the remaining sauce mixture. Repeat.
                      6. Top the final layer of noodles with the reserved half-cup of sauce. Sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese.
                      7. Cover with tin foil and bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes until the cheese has browned.

                      Serves: 9
