One Dish Dinner Class

To help hurried people eat more healthfully, Alice Henneman, MS, RD, developed a presentation that focused on preparation strategies for nutritious one-dish meals.

When a meal is prepared at home, it is easier to include the recommended variety and servings of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Healthful types and portions of fats may be used. Calories can be kept at reasonable levels. The one-dish meal concept was popular, as there was only one thing to fix and included veggies-packed sandwiches and pitas, hearty stews, stir-fries, wraps, super salads and piled-high (with veggies!) pastas. Here is one of her favorites:

Rosemary Bean Pasta

8 oz fettuccine

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp chopped garlic

1-1/2 cups cooked white beans, drained

1/2 cup chopped tomato

2 cups tomato sauce

1 tsp dried rosemary

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic until golden brown. Add the beans and tomatoes. Cook briefly; then add the tomato sauce and the rosemary; cook and stir until heated. Add the pasta, mix well and serve hot.

Serves 4. Each serving (1 cup): 337 calories, 2.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 23 mg sodium, 64 g carbohydrate, 7 g fiber, 15 g protein.
