This Spaghetti Squash Lasagna with Broccolini recipe from Eating Well offers a healthy take on lasagna by combining a beautiful assortment of vegetables and cheeses to make a gorgeous dish that would rival anything found in Italy.

Dijon-Maple Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash
To be honest, you had us with Dijon and Maple. This Dijon-Maple Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash recipe from Pure Wow blends sweet and savory while keeping the calorie count low. The best part is that while it sounds complicated, it is actually a very easy recipe with a total cook and prep time of 55 minutes. The key is to make sure you evenly distribute the glaze across your chicken before baking so that the meat absorbs as much of the flavor as possible.
Cannellini Bean Soup with Fresh Rosemary
Winter is all about soup. Soups offer amazing nourishment and that is especially true of this cannellini bean soup with fresh rosemary recipe from A Beautiful Plate. Cannellini is essentially a white kidney bean, so you know it is going to be tasty and good for you. With just a few select ingredients like bacon, leeks, celery, bay leaves, and, of course, rosemary, preparation time is very fast. However, it’s best to let the soup cook in a slow cooker for at least eight hours so that all the ingredients get very tender and flavorful.
