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

I recently began making my own pasta sauce using tomato paste because I don’t like the chunks of tomatoes that come in the store bought jars. I’ve never written anything down but have just added ingredients ‘to taste’ as I’ve gone along, here is the general recipe:

Macaroni Salad

Use other vegetables as desired in this salad. Small broccoli florets are a nice addition. Nasoya makes a fat free mayonnaise that may also be used in this recipe. It can be found in most natural food stores.

    • Coconut Kissed Pumpkin-Persimmon Pie with Millet Carob Crust
        (Or, “My, My, Me Oh My, I Love Pie”) Does anyone remember the John Travolta movie Michael about an angel who behaves most unlike an angel? Nora Ephron wrote the screen play.
