Thanks, Steve!  :)

 

I do Weight Watchers (Core plan) and would love to swap recipes with anyone else doing WW. This recipe is Core:

 

Canadian Bacon Potato Soup

 

2 medium onions, chopped

4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered

2 cups fat-free chicken broth

1 can fat-free evaporated milk

5 slices Canadian bacon, chopped

1 packet Butter Buds

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

7 tbsp. fat-free sour cream

1/3 cup minched chives

 

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven coated with NS cooking spray, saute onions until tender. Add potatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Set aside 1 cup potato mixture. Puree remaining mixture in food processor and return to pan. Stir in milk, bacon, Butter Buds, salt, ppper, and reserved potato mixture. Heat through, but do not boil. Garnish with 1 tbsp. sour cream and sprinkle with chives. Serves: 7

 

I actually put a little frozen corn in it, too, just for more veggies and it was good! I made a double batch and put half in the freezer for another meal.

Spaghetti Squash Stir-Fry         (weight watchers 1 point)

 

1 spaghetti squash (about 3 lbs)

2 carrots julienned

2 green bell peppers julienned

2 red bell peppers julienned

1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth

1 tsp dried basil

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 cup grated pamesan cheese

 

Pierce the squash with the tip of a sharp knife in several places; place on a paper & microwave on high 20 minutes, until just softened, turning once during cooking. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut the squash in half lengthwise & remove the seeds. Using a fork scoop out the pulp. Measure out 6 cups squash.

 

Spray a large nonstick skillet or wok with nonstick cooking spray heat. Add the carrots & bell peppers cook, stirring as needed until tender-crisp 7 - 8 minutes.

 

Stir in the spaghetti squash, broth, basil & black pepper; cook until heated through about 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the cheese.

 

8 servings

 

I grill or broil a large chicken breast and dice it up and toss in the stir fry right before serving. If you do this and your on weight watchers make sure you add the extra points for the chicken. This tastes similar to Chicken Tuscany @ Luigis
