Today went fast for a Tuesday. I took the day off from working out and went to Target instead. I didn’t get anything too special just some things I need for a few upcoming baking projects, toothpaste and thank-you cards (to feed my addiction for buying stationary).

When I got home, I threw the lasagna I made yesterday into the oven and waited for my brother to arrive and Brady to get home from work. Kevin (my bro) is working in Columbus this week so he decided to stay with us! The pictures of the lasagna turned out so gross. I’ll post them anyways, but don’t judge!

Brady and Kevin each had a plate like this: Laura’s lean ground beef lasagna with Dave’s Killer Bread and a simple salad.

My plate: with leftover green bean casserole and salad

Election Night dinner included a single dish of lasagna that was really like two meals.  It was perfect for both of us!  Here are the steps of this healthy, filling, delicious dinner!

His/Her Lasagna

Main Ingredients:

  • ready to use lasagna noodles (I used a total of 4 sheets for the entire dish – it was in an 8×8)
  • low-fat ricotta cheese
  • pre-made oil-free pesto (made last week with the end of the basil plant)
  • 1 egg white
  • salt and pepper
  • tomato-basil sauce
  • Parmesan cheese

Ali’s side:

  • broiled Brussel sprouts (PAM and salt and pepper for 20 min)
  • green pepper (diced)
  • arugula
  • spinach

Brady’s side:

  • lean ground beef
  • black olives
  • green peppers

Step 1: Make cheese mixture by mixing ricotta + pesto + salt and pepper + egg white.


Step 2: Layer sauce + veggies/meat + noodle.


Step 3: Add cheese mixture and sauce and repeat.

Step 4: Bake at 350 degree covered with foil for 20 min. then uncovered for 10 min.  Sprinkle with parm. when you uncover it!

img_1974Yum!  This dish took no time at all to make, and it would even take less time if I had made it the night before.  These no-cook noodles are awesome!  They are not whole wheat but there are only 210 calories in 3 noodles.  I used a total of 4 noodles to make this dish, which came out to 2 large servings dinner and 2 large serving for lunches tomorrow. The key is too fill up on the fillings (veggies and lean meat!).

For dessert, while watching the results we had Pom Parfaits.

Pom Parfaits  (in each parfait)

  • 1/2 c. Greek 0% yogurt
  • 1/4 c. ff strawberry yogurt
  • 1/3 c. Bear Naked Fit granola
  • 1/4 c. Honey Flax Go Lean Crunch
  • 1/2 c. POM!

I should have added frozen blueberries to make them red, white and blue…oops!


Hope you had a great day!
