Simmer up hearty Sausage Lentil Soup (shown at right) and let your gang wipe their bowls clean with warm Cheddar Dill Biscuits.
Suzanne Dabkowski of Blythewood, South Carolina found this good-for-you Sausage Lentil Soup recipe in a men's magazine and lightened it up. "I ate a lot of it when I was pregnant because it's so tasty and loaded with fiber, vitamins and iron." It also makes good use of low-sodium and low-fat ingredients.
"My husband and I try to eat in a healthful way, decreasing fat and calories wherever possible," writes Carol Braly of South Fork, Colorado. "These homemade Cheddar Dill Biscuits are one of our favorite weekend breakfasts."
