Did you know that potatoes are 100% gluten-free! One medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on potato contains just 110 calories per serving, boasts more potassium (620g) than a banana, provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. So you CAN keep them on your diet, just watch the toppings you put on them, and how you prepare them!
Here's a great and easy potato recipe to make this weekend!
Potato Sausage Lasagna:
|Remove sausage from casing and crumble into a medium skillet with onion. Cook for 10 minutes or until both are browned, breaking up sausage with the back of a spoon.|
Stir together ricotta, basil, garlic powder and egg white in a small bowl. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish. Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the dish, forming a solid layer with no gaps. Drop 1/2 the ricotta mixture in spoonfuls over the top and spread out just a little. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the mozzarella and 1/2 the sausage mixture. Add 1/2 cup more sauce then repeat potato, cheese and meat layers.
Top with the last layer of potatoes, remaining sauce and mozzarella. Cover with plastic wrap and make a small slit to vent. Microwave on HIGH for 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Makes 6 servings.
