Cauliflower is the star in this healthy lasagna, appearing in two roles-once when it's blended into the ricotta cheese filling for texture, and a second time when it's roasted and used in place of the traditional meatballs or sausage. Sweet red bell pepper adds complexity to the tomato sauce and balances the richness of the cheeses.
Grits with Bacon and Beans: For a hearty yet healthy dinner with minimal prep work, try creamy grits over bell peppers, onions, collard greens and black-eyed peas. Using skim milk to prepare the grits will cut back on excess calories and fat.
Barley Risotto with Ham and Mushrooms: Stock your pantry for less by buying grains like barley, rice, quinoa and oatmeal in bulk — they'll cost much less than boxed versions. Use quick-cooking barley in this recipe for a comforting, risotto-style grain dish.
