two bowls of chicken and cauliflower rice soup on a white background with the title
Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Soup
In place of noodles, this soup features cauliflower rice—find it in the freezer section of your grocery store. This cruciferous vegetable does double duty here by making a satisfying textural substitute for the rice or noodles you might normally add to your chicken soup, while also adding some healthful benefits—cauliflower is loaded with nutrients, fiber, vitamins and potassium.

Lighter Tomato “Alfredo” Pasta Bake
A saucy pasta bake loaded with Italian sausage, tomato and Alfredo sauce, fusilli and melty mozzarella sounds delicious, but not particularly light—at least until now! To pull this off, the Betty Crocker Kitchens made a number of smart changes: using turkey sausage in lieu of pork, reducing the amount of cheese and including a homemade Alfredo sauce that starts with a head of cauliflower.

Easy “Porchetta” Sheet-Pan Dinner
Porchetta is a wonderful feast meal typically made by slow roasting an herb-seasoned pork roast that has a flavor-infusing cap of fat and basting it along the way. While we love indulging in this meal when we have time and occasion to do so, it’s not typically a weeknight meal—until now!

the lemon - dijon chicken skillet is ready to be eaten on the table
Lemon-Dijon Chicken Skillet
This tender chicken in a luscious lemon-Dijon sauce might look like it came from a nice restaurant, but it’s a dish you can cook up in your own kitchen, while staying within budget (and under 400 calories!). The trick is using the cooking juices as the base of the rich-tasting sauce and upping its flavor further with a couple of impactful ingredients, like Dijon, rosemary and lemon. Don't forget to stock up on Gold Medal Flour for a nice, thick sauce!

the recipe for lemon - garlic shrimp orzo skillet is shown in a bowl
Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Orzo Skillet
You know that phrase, “a little goes a long way?” Well, that absolutely applies to this dish, which tastes rich and buttery but actually only includes 2 tablespoons of butter! The trick is waiting until the end to add the butter when it can enrich the orzo, which has already been flavored by cooking in Progresso broth. The whole dish is redolent of garlic and butter and only needs a squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of fresh herbs for contrast.

Extra credit if you serve it alongside a green salad and loaf of crusty bread.
