Easy cheesy layer for pasta bakes, lasagne and the like.  High in protein, low in fats and carbs and much quicker to make than a traditional cheese sauce.

Use a tub of Quark, a bit of milk to thin the Quark and a tub of natural low fat cottage cheese.  If you want a completely smooth sauce, put it in the blender and mix, otherwise a bowl and spoon works fine.  Flavour as you wish and add a small amount of grated cheese or parmesan to taste.

This is an adaptation of something I caught on Food Network, where an American chef used cream cheese and cottage cheese in a pasta bake.  I tried both mixed with the cottage cheese.  Quark works just as well as cream cheese but is a fraction of the calories  :D

Ta!  Good tip.  I have a tub of cottage cheese and some thick no fat yog which would work I think. 👍

Chicken noodle soup!

I make chicken stock regularly and freeze it. So easy in the slow cooker!

To some chicken stock add fresh ginger to taste, garlic, fresh chilli, a little fish sauce, some kaffir lime leaves dried or fresh, add lemongrass if you wish, or miso paste, or green Thai curry paste, whatever flavourings you like really and simmer for a few minutes or so, then add shredded chicken and noodles until cooked. Meanwhile add veg to a bowl- for example shredded lettuce, bean sprouts, fine sliced raw mushroom, peppers, sliced radish, sweet corn, mange tout, pak choy etc. Remove lime leaves from the broth and pour over the raw veg and dress with a drizzle of sesame oil, a squeeze of lime and fresh coriander.

This dish is very quick to prepare and you can use any veg you like, although hard veg like carrot will be very crunchy so dont work as well. The flavourings added to the broth can just be done to taste.
