Tuna Noodle Casserole

This Skinny Tuna Noodle Casserole was full of flavor and so delicious. My only memories of Tuna Casserole was the slop they used to serve in my elementary school cafeteria. BLAH! Glad I decided to trust Gina and make this one:} Soooo good! The servings were big and definitely filling. Michael really enjoyed it and Wesley even took some in his lunch today. I was out of mushrooms and sherry so that was the only thing I left out.

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

On Thursday night I made Spinach Lasagna Rolls for the second time. Another fabulous recipe from Gina over at Skinny Taste

These rolls are delicious and filling. I am a sauce lover so I added more sauce to mine which didn't change the caloric count too much. I used the Light Ragu again! Mmmmmm! I also only filled 6-7 lasagna rolls using the 1/3 measurement she suggests. Feeds the family plus I get a yummy lunch the next day. One roll is definitely enough unless your Michael and can eat 3:) I do not suggest using the wheat lasagna rolls.........blah! They are gross and totally not worth it. I LOVE wheat pasta normally, but for some reason the lasagna noodles were icky. This time I used regular noodles and it was a HUGE improvement! I think that I might add a little ground turkey to the mix next time. 

If you make any of these recipes be sure to let me know if the comments. Would love to hear your thoughts!

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches {slow cooker}

This was so very delicious left over. I made this meal in the crockpot several weeks ago and froze it for 3 separate meals. Last night I tossed one in the microwave for 10 minutes and it fed all of us, plus one of Wesley's buddies. Having friends over? This is a simple way to feed everyone:} 

I didn't follow the exact recipe since I had different spices. I just tossed a bunch of stuff in the crock pot. I also used all BBQ ketchup. Ours were served up on whole wheat hamburger buns, but I would like to try some other low calorie options. Or use an Artisan Flat bread to make a BBQ chicken pizza. Mmmmmmmmmm!

Tortellini Soup

Last night's dinner is brought to you by Annie's Eats

You will have to click over to the Tortellini Soup recipe to see a picture since she wont allow uploading of her pics to other websites. This soup was so quick, easy, and delicious! From start to finish it took about 15 minutes, the longest part was waiting for the chicken stock to boil. Michael and Wesley both gave it 2 thumbs up. Wesley even said "The spinach is the best part." WHAT? I'll take that, lol!! 

It was definitely only about 3 servings which was fine since it's so filling. Next time I'm going to double the recipe so I can have it for lunch. According to the comments on the website the soup still tastes great as left over when you don't over cook the tortellini.
