    What a fantastic recipe! Thank you! I might make this instead of the other pasta recipe I Was planning for tomorrow’s dinner…. I tried the Cabot 75% reduced fat yellow cheddar the other day and it was amazing, by the way. How do they do it?!

    Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

      Thanks Gina! I really like the 50 % reduced fat Cabot, because there are no fillers or additives, and unlike many lower fat cheeses, it melts really well, and tastes {to me} like fulll fat cheddar. Never bad to cut back on some cheese calories πŸ™‚ I’d love to know if you make the enchilada back and hear how it turns out for you!

    Such a nice jolly recipe! My only predicament here is the red enchilada sauce; not sure if I can get such a beast in Scotland. We have a Mexican deli so I will have a venture out and see because this looks like something we would all love here at ‘casa foodtoglow’. If I can’t get it do you have a recipe or know of a good one? We like it spicy! And the whizzed black bean trick is a good one to bump up the fibre too. Btw, the home page of wordpress features a blog with hibiscus margaritas that looks really good. Although yet another ‘iffy’ ingredient for us northern latitude folk… And thanks for the kind big up on your FB page. Still not on it myself, on but I saw the mention on your sidebar.

      Hi Kellie~Confession time…..I have never made homemade enchilada sauce before, so I don’t have a good recipe to recommend to you, but I’m sure you could find a good one googling, or maybe someone reading this will share a favorite recipe with you πŸ™‚ Love the idea of a hibiscus margarita~definitely going to look that one up. And, always happy to give a shout out to your healthy and delicious recipes!

    Oh, this sounds fantastic! We have pasta at least twice a month and I do tend to get into a rut with it, doing the same things (usually marinara sauce with roasted veggies) again and again. This would be a great way to do something different that’s still fairly easy!

    You got that right, no complaints on pasta night. Go to pastas I do pesto/peas OR I have butternut squash pasta sauce and Raos that we use in a pinch. My boys play hockey late 2 nights so there’s always pasta making at odd times. This recipe looks great. I have one who isn’t fond of melted cheese (can you imagine?) do you think recipe would still work?

      Oo…yes, peas…love peas with pasta!! What is Raos? I’ll have to look that one up! Hmm…odd son that doesn’t care for melted cheese, but you can easily do without πŸ™‚ Just make sure to sautΓ© the onions first if you aren’t baking the pasta, otherwise the flavor might be a little to strong.

    I was cheering on the ponies for sure! πŸ™‚ I picked Alpha to win and Bodemeister to come in second. I’m a sucker for big bay horses with symmetrical stars and Bodemeister reminded me of Bode Miller who grew up skiing where I did in NH. I know, I know…very legitimate horse-picking strategies I have. Obviously I was wrong about Alpha, but Bodemeister did come in 2nd, so maybe my tactics aren’t so bad! Happy Belated Mother’s Day. Hope the kiddos made your day special!

      Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for your comment, and, yes, you could absolutely omit the cottage cheese and add more cheddar, or I think monterrey jack would be a great choice too. I’d love to hear how it turns out πŸ™‚
