Florentine Lasagna Roll-Ups

Recipe from www.eatingwell.com 

Ingredients

  • 16 lasagna noodles, preferably whole-wheat
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2½ cups low-fat milk
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 16-ounce container low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 16-ounce package frozen cut-leaf spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • ¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation



  1. Put a pot of salted water on to boil. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Cook half the lasagna noodles in boiling water until tender, about 8 minutes. With tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the noodles to a large bowl of cold water. Repeat with the remaining noodles. Drain and arrange the noodles in a single layer on clean kitchen towels. Cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside ¼ cup of the onion mixture. Add flour to the onion mixture remaining in saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk and return to a simmer; cook, whisking, until thickened to the consistency of heavy cream, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Spoon ½ cup of the sauce into bottom of the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  4. Process cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Add the reserved ¼ cup onion mixture, spinach and mozzarella; pulse until finely chopped. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add egg and pulse until blended.
  5. Spread about 3 tablespoons spinach mixture over 1 noodle. Roll up firmly and place seam-down in the prepared pan. Repeat with the remaining noodles and spinach mixture. Spoon the remaining sauce evenly over roll-ups and sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake roll-ups, uncovered, until bubbling and golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving






Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup

Recipe from www.eatingwell.com 

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms, (about 4 ounces)
  • ¾ cup chopped celery
  • ¾ cup chopped carrots
  • ¼ cup chopped shallots
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup quick-cooking or instant wild rice, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken, or turkey (12 ounces; see Tip)
  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

 

Preparation



  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, celery, carrots and shallots and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add flour, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more.
  2. Add broth and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Add rice and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until the rice is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in turkey (or chicken), sour cream and parsley and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes more.
  3. Ingredient note: Quick-cooking or instant wild rice has been parboiled to reduce the cooking time. Conventional wild rice takes 40 to 50 minutes to cook. Be sure to check the cooking directions when selecting your rice—some brands labeled “quick” take about 30 minutes to cook. If you can't find the quick-cooking variety, just add cooked conventional wild rice along with the turkey at the end of Step 2.
  4. Tip: To poach chicken breasts, place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
