Zucchini Casserole

Someone had given me a bunch of zucchini & I wanted to use them up before they went bad, so I found this one in searching for recipes, and I'm glad I did!  To make 4 cups of zucchini you'll need about 1 large, 2 medium or 4 small.  Be sure to wring out all the water, and it will produce a lot as you grate it.  I added some garlic.  It is 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg not either/or.  I left out the parsley and added some crushed red pepper and pepper.

Cajun Chicken Pasta on the Lighter Side

My husband and I both really enjoyed this recipe!  We used to go to Macaroni Grill all the time, and this was my husband's regular dish to order there.  I used whole grain spaghetti and left out the mushrooms because I don't like them and used a white onion.  It was a really good, different version of just plain old pasta!

Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken

I made this a couple nights ago and it was sooooooo good!!  You could use less jalapeno, depending on how much you like it and how spicy you like your food, but if you remove the ribs and the seeds, and once it's cooked, it lowers the heat level a lot.  You can use any cheese like the WW Mexican cheese or just 2% cheddar or whatever you have on hand.  I used regular chicken breasts and just sliced them down the middle.  I didn't have a lime, but I did have a lemon so I used that instead.  I served this with some brown rice and some frozen steam in the bag veggies on the side.
