We liked our Clam Pasta from a while back so much that we made it with lemon chicken this time. It is a light and colorful pasta dish full of some of our favorite summer vegetables: zucchini, summer squash, peppers and tomatoes.
Butter clams are mixed with turkey sausage and vegetables in this flavorful and colorful pasta dish. You can make it with store-bought clams but if you do have the opportunity to go clamming, you'll enjoy your meal even more.
This chicken and artichoke tortellini salad is quick to make and yummy served warm or chilled. You can mix up the ingredients based on the veggies and spices that you have on hand.
This pasta dish is a great way to turn leftover salmon into a new meal. Plus, since the salmon is in small flakes and tossed with a lot of other ingredients, it is a sneaky way to get your family to stock up on heart-healthy omega-3's.
This pasta dish is similar to my Pizza Pasta and also closely resembles a traditional lasagna with the ricotta cheese. The simple Italian flavors come together quickly to make a sophisticated meal.
Chicken noodle soup is a healthy all-in-one meal that provides lean protein, starch and veggies with each bite. It is a comforting meal choice even when you aren't feeling under the weather.
I'm a fan of pistou, the French version of pesto, because it doesn't have pine nuts. The sauce is light and doesn't overpower the pasta. Made without chicken, this pistou pasta would also make a yummy side dish.
Ever since I can remember my family has had my Grandma's lasagne for our Christmas Eve dinner. I have made a few slight changes to my Grandma's recipe to make it lighter but it has the same hearty, comforting flavors.
This pasta dish is sneaky because it disguises healthy veggies and makes them appealing to kids (and adults). There is nothing more satisfying than watching your child scarf down spinach and tomatoes... and ask for seconds!
The best thing about this salad, besides how easy it is to make, is that you can add whatever veggies and seasonings you would like. It is light, refreshing and yummy when served chilled or heated.
