    I love this one....yummy AND healthy!

    Recipe: Shrimp scampi
    By Mayo Clinic staff

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Original Article:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/shrimp-scampi/NU00439
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dietitian's tip:
    Traditionally, "scampi" refers to large shrimp that have been covered in garlic oil or butter and broiled. Here the shrimp are sauteed in a small amount of olive oil and tossed together with shallots, lemon juice and brandy or sherry. Served over pasta, this lighter version cuts out 325 calories and 28 grams of fat per serving.

    By Mayo Clinic staff

    Serves 6
    Ingredients
    8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 pounds large shrimp (prawns), peeled and deveined
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1/4 cup chopped shallots or green onions
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons brandy or sherry, optional
    1/4 cup chopped parsley
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Ground black pepper, to taste
    4 tablespoons trans-free margarine


    Directions
    Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente (tender), about 10 to 12 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain the pasta thoroughly.

    While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes. Turn the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque throughout, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm.

    Add the garlic and shallots to the saucepan and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the lemon juice, brandy or sherry if desired, parsley, salt and pepper. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the margarine and cooked shrimp. Toss to coat with the sauce.

    Divide the pasta among warmed individual bowls. Top each serving with shrimp sauce and serve immediately.

    Anyone want a healthy version of grilled cheese sandwiches? I came up with this one myself on a whim Fix some tomato soup to go with it and voila! A quick and easy dinner.

    Healthy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

    Non-stick cooking spray
    Whole wheat bread
    "I Can't Believe it's not Butter" spray
    Fat free American cheese (the sliced kind, I like Borden)

    Spray frying pan/skillet with non-stick cooking spray and pre-heat on medium/medium-high.

    Generously spray one side only of bread slices with the "I Can't Believe it's not Butter" spray and place on frying pan "buttered" side down.

    Place two slices of fat-free cheese on each slice of bread on frying pan/skillet.

    Spray one side only of remaining bread slices and place on top for top part of sanwiches, "buttered" side UP.

    Cook until browned and cheese begins to melt, then flip and brown other side.

    Here's a new recipe I tried and we thought it was yummy!

    Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

    Ingredients
    4 pork chops
    1 tablespoon (or as much as desired) lemon pepper
    4 tablespoons butter
    4 tablespoons olive oil
    4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    Directions
    1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    2.Tear off a generous square of tin foil for each chop, enough to wrap and seal completely. Coat both sides of each chop with lemon pepper.
    3.Put 1/2 tablespoon butter and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in the middle of each square of tin foil. Put the peppered chops on top of the butter and oil. Put 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil on top of each chop. Add 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce over the top of each chop. Wrap each chop tightly and place on a cookie sheet on the middle rack of oven. Bake for 35 minutes.
