Sunday: Skinny Skillet Whatever — This is an awesome meatless Monday dinner idea. Skinny Skillet Whatever is filled with nutritious vegetables, whole wheat penne pasta and savory Feta cheese. There is nothing more exciting than a vegetarian dish that you love just as much as your meat-filled meals. The greatest thing about this healthy pasta recipe is that you can add whatever vegetables you have (they don't always have to be the same ones). We like to make this at the end of the week with any veggies we have leftover. It's truly "whatever" you'd like it to be, and always amazing!
Monday: Healthy Cheeseburger Casserole — Too good to be true? Not at all. With lean ground beef and low fat cheese, this Healthy Cheeseburger Casserole is a reality. And a delightful one at that. This is the perfect healthy casserole recipe to make when you have a craving for a fast food burger. Ditch all the unnecessary fat and calories and make this lighter version of America's favorite sandwich.
Tuesday: Teriyaki Chicken Casserole — This chicken casserole recipe combines two of your favorite Asian recipes into one fabulous dish. Teriyaki chicken and "fried" rice come together in this easy chicken dinner that can truly feed the whole family. To make this recipe a little bit healthier, substitute the fried rice for brown rice. Brown rice keeps the "fried" look but eliminates a lot of the fat from this dish. This is such a brilliant idea for a take-out fake-out that truly fills your belly and keeps you on track for eating better-for-you foods.
Wednesday: Skinny Hawaiian Pizza Casserole — Pizza is a classic "cheat day" food. We tend to save it for special occasions or for after a week of intense workouts. But not anymore! This recipe for Skinny Hawaiian Pizza Casserole is such a wonderful meal for anyone looking to eat better without giving up their favorite foods. Filled with tons of vegetables and healthy proteins, this healthy casserole recipe is definitely one to keep on hand for an easy weeknight meal. Switch up the ingredients to make any kind of pizza your family likes. It's a win, win every time.
Thursday: Easy Garden Skillet Casserole — If you have a garden, this Easy Garden Skillet will cost you next to nothing to make. Made with fresh vegetables and optional turkey meatballs, this one-pot dinner recipe is a phenomenal way to make a quick dinner recipe really come alive. The added cheese and marinara sauce gives this recipe an Italian flare, so we recommend serving this with a side of pasta or rustic, crusty bread. Mmm, mmm, we can't imagine a better recipe for a dinner for one or two. So easy and so delicious.
Friday: Lighter Eggplant Parmesan — If there ever was a dish that could warm your soul and fill your belly, it's this Lighter Eggplant Parmesan. You can't get much more traditional than this. If you're in the mood for a vegetarian dish, or a homemade Italian recipe from the heart, give this wonderfully cheesy casserole recipe a try. We promise you won't regret it. Plus, this recipe includes low-fat cheeses, making it a healthier option than its original recipe.
Saturday: Skinny Italian Beef & Peppers Casserole — Get ready to dig into this Skinny Italian Beef & Peppers Casserole! This dinner is the answer to the challenge of cooking low-carb Italian meals, and the results couldnt be more delicious! Peppers, onions, celery, and a little surprise (garbanzo beans!) balance out the hearty ground beef in this perfect weeknight meal. This dish keeps well in the freezer, making it a great make-ahead meal, and the leftovers are easy to reheat and still taste fantastic for a small lunch. Mix up your beef casserole recipes and give this one a try!
