Family Friendly low carb suppers?

I am looking for ideas to serve the entire family, so that I am not always eating something different from them. We have always eaten a lot of fresh pasta, veggie pizza, etc and now I don't, so any great ideas out there?? Thanks!

Please visit the recipe room, that is the only thing that has kept me low carbing since 2000, had a failed attempt in 1999, just couldn't find a variety of things to eat, there are so many things in the recipe room to cook, that I ONLY cook low carb. My DH and DD's do not have weight issues, though I hope that my low carbing is rubbing off on the girls, my hubby is 45 in April and still doesn't have an ounce of fat on him, not even the ole beer belly or spare tire..........ooohhhhh some people are just blessed with great metabolism naturally.

They all do eat other things besides low carb, but I refuse to have anything to do with it, if they want it they cook it, clean up after themselves and keep it the he!! away from me.

Good Luck.

I make the pepperoni stuffed chicken that is listed in the recipe room. It is awesome. Everyone who eats it loves it. The pepperoni flavors the chicken and it is usually very moist. Sometimes we double the sauce recipe. It looks a bit complicated because you have to roll the chicken up but it really isn't and like I said, everyone loves it. I usually make Linda's cauliflower casserole (I think that is what it is called) with mayo, mushrooms and onions. That is a great side and very good too.

1/2 pound ground beef - browned
1/2 pound Italian sausage - browned
4 medium zucchini - roasted, peeled and sliced thinly lengthwise
1 cup Ricotta cheese
1 cup spaghetti sauce - (find one with low carbs)
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Spread a very thin layer of sauce on the bottom of 9x9 casserole.
Brown meat and drain.
Add tomato sauce. Mix well and divide into four portions.
Layer zucchini, meat sauce, Ricotta, shredded cheese. Repeat layering four times.
Sprinkle remaining cheese and shredded Parmesan cheese on top.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Then uncover and bake for 15 additional minutes.
Let stand for 10 minutes before serving

I make the zucchini lasagna often but here are some tweaks that seem to make it work better:

do not use cottage cheese, it is too runny. use ricotta instead

stir an egg into the ricotta cheese to help hold things together

grating the zucchini with a cheese grater is much less work than roasting it and helps release most of the water.

mix a handful of the mozzarella with the meat sauce and be careful not to use too much tomato sauce, you dont want it to be runny.

My lasagna turns out perfect every time!

The Deep Dish Pizza in the recipe room is great & I think it's even better the next day. Tastes like home-made pizza I used to make. Plus it smells GREAT when cooking!!

Check out the crock pot pizza chicken in the sticky above. Before serving, I pull out the chicken into a casserole along with the peppers, and top all with mozzarella cheese and bake for 15 minutes. Kids enjoy with some noodles and greenbeans or salad. We also just had tacos the other night, and I filled up a tupperware veggie tray that has about 6 sections with different toppings, with the ground beef in the center (refilled as emptied). For some reason they got a kick out of making their own tacos (hard shell and soft shell kit from el paso), and hubby and I had huge taco salads. Very good.
