*I sometimes use diced tomatoes instead of stewed. Add seasonings if you don’t use a flavored variety.

Pesto

I have an awesome lower fat pesto sauce. I got it from the McDougall newsletter and adapted it. I think the original was created by Jill Nussinow who teaches together with McDougall’s during their live in sessions and on their latest DVDs.

Pasta E Fagioli (Pasta and Beans)

NOTES: This Italian-inspired, meal-in-a-pot is rich in fiber-filled ingredients, like beans and vegetables. It’s a tasty vitamin- packed, meatless meal that cooks in no time, especially if you use leftover pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve with a slice of bread and a salad

Pasta Salad

Sometimes I also add a bit of curry paste dissolved in hot water.

Pad Thai

I started with a recipe for vegetarian Pad Thai that I found on the WeightWatchers.com forums, but I’ve changed it drastically over the past two years. Alas, it doesn’t taste just like the restaurant stuff in my opinion, but it’s good in its own right and my husband swears he likes mine better. –mimsy

      I had a craving for black bean soup but didn’t feel like cooking. I wanted to keep the chopping and measuring to a minimum, so I tried to narrow down black bean soup to its most essential flavors. I came up with a soup that took just a few minutes to throw together and then... […]

      I never was the child who tore open the wrapping on the birthday or Christmas presents with abandon, paper and ribbon crumpled and cast aside. For me, there was always a reverence to the opening, a hushed feeling. Was it really my turn? Was this really for me? And then the wrapping, so pretty. I […]
