Mini Mac-And-Cheese

The use of broccoli and low-fat ricotta gives this mac-and-cheese recipe a healthy edge over many other versions. Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) provides a crusty top that?s a crunchy complement to the cheesy filling.

Chili Con Cupcake

These meaty cakes feature all the classic flavors of a (not-too) spicy bowl of homemade chili, plus corn, bell peppers, and a generous sprinkle of cheddar. We used sour cream for the finishing touch, but barbecue sauce and tomato sauce make tasty toppers as well.

Petite and Sweet Shepherd's Pie

This reinvented comfort dish has an earthy sweetness, thanks to the sweet potatoes, carrot, and parsnip. The last two are shredded right into the pork filling, so picky eaters won't notice them.
