Okay, it's almost New Years resolution time. (Again!)

Alot of us are going to try to lose weight, right? (Well, I am atleast!) And, we are also very busy people, because we are on the DIS way too much. (that's okay though...)

So, what are some easy, time saving receipes that you use, that aren't too fattening or un-healthy.

Please share! Come on... I've got my pen and paper ready so I can go grocery shopping and get what I'll need!

We tried the new Pasta Bakes jar the other night.... all you do is throw in uncooked pasta, the sauce, and a jar of water in 13x9 and bake. Add Mozz. cheese and bake until melted... the instructions are on the jar. This was super easy and my family ate every last drop! You could add hamburger or pepperoni, etc... but that would definitely add to the calorie content!

:D

webmomom - oh, nothing super-specific, I just wanted people to post their fav's. Give some new ideas, that type of thing.

Any chicken or ground beef receipes would be great, but I'm not too picky.
