As most of you know, I’m trying to get my husband to realize that he’s just got to stop thinking that “not being fat” is not the same thing as being healthy.

This morning at breakfast he had a BOGO for one of the few restaurants out here in the “hinterland“.  While I opted for one of their “fit and fabulous” plates of egg whites/spinach/cherry tomatoes with fruit and whole wheat english muffin-he opted for a bacon/avocado/cheddar omelet with extra crispy hashed browns with a side of pancakes.  

He noticed my look and opted for the “whole grain” pancakes.  As if that was going to make a difference.

any way, the waiter brought over our meals and said, “One healthy and hearty meal and one heart attack on a plate.”

The man laughed.  Sigh.

So tomorrow for dinner I’m making a take on lasagna that I read about in our local newspaper:

serves 4

pre-heat oven to 400

4 whole wheat lasagna noodles, cooked
1 C white beans, drained and pureed with
1 clove of garlic
1 lb asparagus, cut in 1” pieces and blanched
1/2 C peas, either fresh or frozen and thawed.

1/2 the noodles.  In separate oven proof dishes of your choice, lie one noodle slice on each plate, spread with some of the bean puree so you have 1/2 left, equal amounts of the veggies and top with noodle.  Repeat with puree mixture and top with freshly grated romano or parmesan.

pop into waiting oven to get everything nice and hot.

Serve with a side salad of your choice.

Love it
