I made these tonight and they were delicious! I cooked the quinoa in beef broth & a little water, and subbed low fat ricotta for the cottage cheese, subbed garbanzo bean flour for the AP flour. Definitely a keeper recipe!

tomato basil parmesan soup for the crock pot. Made this today. Subtle tomato flavor. Lightened it by using 1c skim milk and 1c half and half. Didnt stir in Parm but just grated some on top before serving. Great with simple grilled cheese sandwiches. Kids liked the soup. Though not likr Norstrom Cafe's tomato soup (which has something like 2 cups of heavy cream), I will make again.
