Quick & Easy Cooking: Main Dishes

  • For an easy dinner, broil fish or chicken and top with a sauce of 1 cup non-fat yogurt,1 seeded and grated cucumber, a little lime juice, chopped fresh mint and salt and pepper.
  • Easy Italian Pasta: Sauté chopped fresh sage leaves, garlic and olive oil until the sage begins to brown. Toss on cooked pasta for a surprisingly delicious treat.
  • When you don't have time to cook: Top pasta with good bottled sauce, lowfat ricotta, a little parmesan and broccoli steamed in the microwave.
  • For an exotic but very simple dinner, try Quick Peanut Sauce over rice and your favorite stir-fried vegetables.
  • Tired of plain old tomato sauce on your pasta? Try a high-fiber, low-fat, fast alternative: Toss cooked pasta with canned lentil or bean soup.
  • Quick quesadillas: Reheat leftover chicken; place between two tortillas with shredded cheddar, sliced green onions, and salsa. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
