How about a recipe today, guys? I made a Zucchini Casserole last night with fresh zucchini from our garden. It was SO GOOD!
Thanks to my mother for the recipe - which I modified a little to keep the calories lower...
1 zucchini cut into bite sized pieces
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 can of mushroom, drained
1 pound of chicken sausage (you can use regular sausage or ground beef - I actually used 4 links of chicken sausage)
Shredded cheddar or mozarella cheese (I used 1 cup of Price Chopper fat free cheddar cheese)
Combine all ingredients in a glass pan. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
This was so delish and very low calorie. The whole casserole came to around 1400. Since I divide my calories into a relatively small lunch and breakfast and then a heavier dinner, even eating 1/2 of this casserole only put me at 1300 calories for the day. I even made a piece of garlic bread on 35 calorie per slice oatmeal bread - Country Kitchen makes this bread.
