"Make Over My Thanksgiving Leftovers!"
What are you going to do with the insane amount of delicious, calorie-bomb Thanksgiving leftovers sitting in your fridge? Eat them, of course -- but only after giving each dish one of these easy, healthy upgrades
Leftover: Green bean casseroleMakeover: Veggie pasta
Fried onions, butter, and cream of mushroom soup do not make for a healthy dish -- even with the addition of green beans. With a calorically high casserole like this one, Henderiks says the best thing to do is "chop it all up." Then, cook whole-wheat pasta, and stir-fry the cooked pasta with some of the chopped up casserole and some olive oil. Toss in some veggies like tomatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms, and sprinkle it with some low-fat mozzarella or Parmesan cheese.
