Inside Out Lasagna

Here we take basic lasagna ingredients—ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes—and skip the layering and long baking time to make a super-quick and satisfying meal for the whole family. To cut down on prep time, look for presliced mushrooms. For meat lovers, brown some crumbled turkey sausage along with the onions and garlic.   This is so amazing and the calorie count is great too!

Lighter Tomato Pie

This lighter tomato pie recipe is delicious!   I made sure to add plenty of fresh basil leaves, ground pepper and fresh scallions.   This is wonderful after work, week night dinner.   These are the tomatoes that were gifted to Harvest Lite Café by Sneed Farm (Thank you).  Last summer we had been gifted some ripe tomatoes from Tom Sneed and we enjoyed them tremendously. There is a recipe for stuffed tomatoes from last summer, here on the Harvest website.  The Sneed farm is located in Evansville, TN which is near Chattanooga.  I hear that these beauties can be found at many local produce stands.   If you are near that area be sure to look for them, they are delicious and you would not be disappointed.
