    My sister and I, who are both on WW, stopped on our way to Atlanta.  We had the white chicken chilli and the salad bar.  I counted 5 pts. for the whole thing, even though I am on CORE, because I had no way to judge it.  We didn't touch thge bread that came with the soup.

     It was very good and filling.

    T&T and delicious

     

     

    Vegetarian Chili (this recipe may be cut in half)

     

    In a large Dutch oven sauté:

     

    Onions (to taste)

    Celery (to taste)

    Garlic cloves (4-5 or to taste)

    Green pepper(s) (to taste)

     

    Add:

     

    2 cans 28 oz tomatoes (I like crushed--you may add a little sugar if the tomatoes are too acidic)

    2 cans tomato soup (small cans)

    2 cans kidney beans (16-19 oz)

    1 can chickpeas (16-19 oz)

    1 can Romano beans (16-19 oz)

    2 cans pork'n'beans (in tomato sauce only (no meat))

    1 can each of any 3 beans (Pinto/kidney/black/great white), basically any bean you like

    4 tbsp (approx--to taste) chili powder

     

    Bring to a boil, stirring gently as to not break up the beans, lower to a simmer and cook 45-60 minutes more.  Thicken if necessary. Serve hot

     

    1 cup serving = 3 to 31/2 points!

     

     

     

     

    TURKEY GOULASH

     

    1 lb ground turkey

    salt to taste

    pepper to taste

    onion powder to taste

    garlic powder to taste

    1 16 oz can whole tomatoes, chopped

    2 cans V-8 juice (4 cans V-8 juice)

    1 green pepper (2 green peppers)

    1 Tbsp minced onion

    2 oz elbow macaroni (4 oz elbow macaroni)

    (2 medium zucchini)

     

    Brown turkey well with seasonings.  Add tomatoes, juice, green pepper, and onion.  Bring to a boil.  Add macaroni and continue to boil, uncovered, until macaroni absorbs all of the juice and is tender.  About 20 minutes.  Add zucchini near end. 

     

    Original version is 4 servings, altered recipe serves 8.

     

    Original recipe is WW 7 points, altered recipe = 4 points

     

     

     

    Linguine with Black Bean Sauce

     

    2 tsp olive oil

    2 Morningstar Spicy Black Bean burgers

    1 10 oz pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed (optional, may substitute or add chopped zucchini to taste)

    1 28 oz jar of spaghetti sauce

    8 oz linguine, cooked/boiled al dente

    Sprinkle of Romano cheese (optional)

     

    Serves 4

    4 WW pt

     

    In large skillet, heat olive oil. Add the black bean burgers, cook through. (About 1 minute each side) Using your spatula, break up the black bean burgers into small bits. Add the thawed spinach, heat through. Add the spaghetti sauce bring to a boil, then lower the heat and let simmer 5 minutes. Add the cooked Linguine, mix well and simmer another 5 minutes.

     

    Dress with Romano cheese

    This freezes and reheats well.

    Betty, great job on your loss!   A lot of restaurants have NI on their websites now, which makes it super easy to figure points.   :)

    I've got a whole bunch of WW friendly recipes in my favorites, from WW, Cooking Light, Light & Tasty.   The healthy ones start around page 7

     

    http://community.tasteofhome.com/forums/t/9490.aspx?PageIndex=7

     

    I've got lots of links for NI, but mostly for chains like Wendy's, McDs, BK, Pizza Hut, Subway, etc.    Uno's gives NI on their site also.   I think Olive Garden does the NI for their light menu only.
