Simple noodle recipes

Updated on June 29, 2015

Don't let people tell you that noodles are bad for you. Given the type of noodle you buy, you can use gluten free noodles, vegetable infused noodles and high protein noodles. Noodles provide protein, fiber, nutrients and let's face it; they also fill us up, giving us that satisfying feel we look forward to after eating a meal. I am providing you with some easy, inexpensive and fast noodle dishes that your whole family will love. My two children, who are known to be picky eaters, have grown to love vegetables because of how I use them in my noodle dishes. Enjoy!

Killer Lasagna

Curly lasagna noodles, cooked al dente, or your choice of gluten free lasagna

Meat of choice: ground sausage, ground turkey or ground beef (2 pounds)

Fresh baby spinach leaves, fresh mushrooms, peeled and sliced, 1 medium onion chopped, 1 quarter each of red, yellow and orange peppers, chopped; then sauteed in 2 TBL of coconut oil until softened

2 jars/cans of spaghetti sauce (I like Newman's or Classico myself)

2 TBL each; garlic powder, parsley flakes, Italian seasoning, Hungarian paprika, ground, black pepper; added to the vegetables while being sauteed

1 container each of small curd cottage cheese, low-fat ricotta cheese

16 oz bag of shredded mozzarella (save a large handful for later)

1 cup parmesean cheese

In a very large sided skillet, place the vegetables in 2 TBL of coconut oil (or Olive oil if you prefer) and spices and sautee until they begin the soften. Add the meat. Continue sauteeing until the meat and vegetables are cooked. The spinach will shrink and become dark in color.

In a bowl, while you are cooking the above ingredients, mix together the cheeses and set aside.

To assemble, spoon a bit of sauce on bottom of greased lasagna or elongated baking pan and place a layer of lasagna noodles for the base. Over the noodles, spoon the cheese mixture first, the meat/vegetable mixture next and the sauce last. Continue layering the lasagna noodles, but alternate the direction of the noodles (horizontal then vertical) for each layer and top with ingredients in the same fashion. Top with a coating of mozzarella cheese that you had saved earlier. Cover lightly with aluminum foil and bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. The lasagna will be bubbling on the sides when ready. Serve with garlic bread.
