Well we haven’t done this for awhile! Cooking With The Husband!
The Husband has been whipping up some amazing Figure Friendly dishes since we started on Weight Watcher’s! This is the best one by far!
He used the same red sauce recipe for Shells and Lasagna. And he uses chicken breasts instead of beef…
I wonder what I said to make him blush? Like I’ve said before, I love a man who knows his way around the kitchen!
He choose all low calorie ingredients. Each serving has about 8 Weight Watcher’s points…and the servings are big Peeps!
The Husband’s Chicken Lasagna
4 large chicken breasts
Package of sundried tomatoes
3- 16 oz cans tomato sauce
1-12 oz can tomato paste
12 oz can of mushrooms
1 oz- minced garlic
2 teaspoons sugar
16 oz fat free cottage cheese
12 oz part skim ricotta cheese
12 oz whole wheat lasagna noodles
¼ cup egg substitute
2 packages of fat free mozzarella cheese shredded
In a medium sauce pan, mix tomato sauce, tomato paste, garlic, and sugar, and simmers for 30 minutes.
Cut chicken breasts into small cubes and sautee with one tablespoon of olive oil and minced sundried tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook lasagna noodles and drain.
Mix cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, and egg substitute.
Spray Pam on 9×11 cooking pan.
Layer ingredients like this:
1. Red sauce
2. Lasagna noodles
3. Red sauce
4. Chicken and sundried tomato
5. Cottage cheesed and ricotta cheese
6. Shredded Mozzarella
7. Noodles again
8. Repeat- until pan is full
Top with red sauce and cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes until hot inside.
Jumbo Shells (Cooked)
Chop chicken into smaller finer pieces
Put chicken mixture and cottage cheese mixture into each shell
Put stuffed shells in a 9×13′ pan and pour the red sauce all over the top.
Put mozz. cheese on top and bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is toasted and shells are hot. (I put the oven on broil for a minute to toast the cheese on top)
The recipe will make 18-20 shells. You may need a 8 x8 pan in addition to the 9 x 13!
It’s snowing Parmesan on these shells…
