EGGPLANT PARMESAN (4 Point)

Kerry I was looking for some Eggplant recipes for you so far I found 2 recipes for Eggplant parmesan which I will post anyway But I'll keep looking for something else
(I am a recipe junkie)

EGGPLANT PARMESAN (4 Point)
Ingredients:

1 cup dry bread crumbs -- unseasoned
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp. dried basil
4 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium eggplants -- about 2 pounds, unpeeled, each cut crosswise into 8 slices
vegetable cooking spray -- orolive oil spray
3 cups low-fat spaghetti sauce
1 cup part skim milk mozzarella cheese -- shredded
2 TBLSP. fresh parsley -- chopped
Procedure


In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and basil. Mix well. In another shallow bowl, lightly beat together egg whites andsalt. Working one at a time, dip eggplant slices into egg whites, then into crumb mixture. Turn to coat both sides with crumbs.

Place slices on 1 large or 2 small baking sheets that have been sprayed with non-stick spray. Spray tops of slices lightly with olive oil cooking spray.

Bake at 400╝F for 15 minutes. Remove eggplant slices from oven, turn them over, and spray again with cooking spray. Return to oven and bake for 15 more minutes.

To assemble casserole, spoon 1 cup pasta sauce over bottom of 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Top with 1/2 eggplant slices. Spoon another 1 cup sauce over eggplant, followed by 1/2 mozzarella. Repeat layering with remaining eggplant slices, sauce, and mozzarella.

Sprinkle parsley over top. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, until cheese is completely melted and sauce is bubbly. Serve immediately!

DOES ANYONE HAVE...?

Would anyone happen to have a WW recipe for a sausage roll? My leader handed it out during a meeting long ago and it was delicious. You could have (2) 1" slices for very few points and it was great for breakfast. I think it used refrigerated dough, turkey sausage, mozzarella, provolone, garlic powder and margarine. You would roll out the dough, brush the margarine and garlic powder on, crumble the sausage, sprinkle with the cheeses, then roll up and pinch the ends and bake. It was a long roll and then you would cut it into 1" slices. It was so good.

Turkey Enchilada Pie
POINTS: 4


1 sprays cooking spray
3/4 pound lean ground turkey
1 medium onion(s), chopped
1 tsp chili powder
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup fat-free skim milk
4 oz canned jalapeno peppers, drained and chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)
3 cup tomato(es), chopped
10 Tbsp low-fat shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350░F. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Place turkey, onion and chili powder in skillet and cook until turkey is browned, stirring occasionally to break up meat, about 8 minutes. Remove turkey mixture from skillet and set aside.


Place skillet over medium-high heat and add flour. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium; simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.


Remove skillet from heat; stir in turkey mixture, jalapenos and cumin.


Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on HIGH until softened, about 15 seconds. Place 1 tortilla in bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Spread 1/3 of turkey mixture over tortilla. Spoon 1 cup of tomato on top and sprinkle with 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of cheese. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients ending up with 2 tablespoons of cheese.


Cover pie plate with aluminum foil and cook until cheese melts and filling is warmed through, about 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, 2 minutes before cutting into 6 wedges.

Looking for an old WW recipe....

This recipe was probably from the mid 80's. I know it used cottage cheese, chopped green pepper, onion, maybe bread crumbs and tuna? Not sure, but it was made into patties and baked. They were soooooo good! I have searched all over the internet and can't find it. I'm not even sure what WW plan it was in - Flex, Quick Start, etc. etc.

Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

Hi! And Help

Wow! Is this place ever a great source of recipes! I just tried the Meatloaf Muffins from the first page and they're fantastic! I'm taking the plunge and doing WW with a friend and our respective moms. Time to slim down--again.

I have absolutely no idea if any of you will have this recipe but I'm hoping someone might know it or know where I can look. It's a meatloaf recipe that uses cauliflower in place of the oatmeal or rice normally used. My mom used to make it way back when she was on WW in the 80s. You could have 1/4 of one loaf as a serving but mom used to make two loafs and you'd have half a loaf as a serving. I can't imagine the points would be too high now.

I'll gather up some of the recipes I used the last time I did this and put them up. I had a meat crust pizza that was really yummy.

Butternut Squash Fries

POINTS« Value: 1
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 18 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

A great alternative to deep-fried potatoes. These fries are slightly sweet, slightly spicy and oven-baked for a nice roasted flavor.

Ingredients

* 3 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray
* 1 pound(s) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, long “neck” cut into sixteen 3/4-inch-thick sticks*
* 1 tsp table salt, or to taste
* 1/2 tsp chili powder, or to taste (optional)

Instructions

* Preheat oven to 450║F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

* Arrange squash fries on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and chili powder; liberally coat with cooking spray.

* Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 14 to 18 minutes. Yields 4 fries per serving.

Notes

* *Start with a large squash. You will end up using about 1 lb of squash and have the “bulb” of the squash left over.

Any hard winter squash will work in this recipe.

Diet Cola Chicken:
In a pan sprayed with PAM, brown 4 6-oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts on each side. Remove chicken from skillet and ad 1 large sliced onion, 2 sliced zucchini, 2 large peeled carrots, sliced, and one sliced red pepper. Saute till the veggies start to soften, then return the chicken to the pan. Add 1 can diet cola (I like Coke Zero) and 1 c. salsa, or 1/2 c. each of sugar-free ketchup and salsa. Mix and simmer with the lid off till the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened to your liking. Serve over bulgur (1 cup = 2 Points). The Points value for the dish is 4-5 for the chicken, depending on the size of the pieces you used. (I weigh the cooked chicken because I'm lousy at eyeballing)
