Xtrema Cookware Goes Italian with Healthy Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Do you love Italian food and cooking healthy...

Then your sure to love this Weight Watchers Spinach Lasagna Rolls Recipe from Chef Mommy--Family friendly eats from my kitchen to yours...Enjoy!

We had a few friends over last night and tried this recipe for the first time and it was a huge success!  Everyone went back for seconds as one piece just wasn't enough.  What's even better is that it's healthy so you don't have to feel guilty about going back for more. Of course we cooked this meal in the Xtrema Ceramic 4 Qt Oblong Baking Dish and served it right to the table from the oven. Because Xtrema retains the heat so well, those second helpings of Lasagna were still nice and hot!  Wow! This dish was delicious and we recommend that you give it a try and let us know what you think...

Here is a picture of how it turned out for us--

Greek Chicken and Pita Casserole

Xtrema goes Greek in the Kitchen

We are just loving Pinterest and last night we tried a new Greek Recipe in the Xtrema Ceramic 4 Qt Oblong and it was delicious.  It was called Greek Chicken and Pita Casserole and it was easy to make and it sure was tasty.  Take a look at this photo to see how it turned out. By using Xtrema, we were able to take it right out of the oven and place it directly on the table where it retained the heat and kept the dish nice and warm. 

Here are some quick facts about Xtrema Ceramic Cookware and Bakeware.

Foods cooked and baked in ceramics taste better, look fresher and are healthier.
  • Greater moisture retention. Foods cooked in Xtrema do not dry out like they do when cooking on top of the stove with metal cookware or using metal baking pans in a gas an electric oven.
  • Meats, fish, vegetables and baked goods cooked in Xtrema are juicier even after long
    periods of time.
  • There is little or no food shrinkage when cooking with Xtrema.
  • Natural flavor is enhanced when cooking with Xtrema and there is never any toxic metal flavor in the food.
  • Xtrema’s unique ceramic formula generates far infrared radiant heat and energy. Xtrema’s healthy and non toxic ceramic minerals like Silica Oxide (SiO2) which is used in our special clay mixture absorbs and emits far infrared radiant heat (FIR) which is the best heat for cooking foods.
  • The retained heat in the ceramic walls of our Xtrema cookware does the cooking and keeps on cooking and heating long after the heat has been turned off.Thin walled stainless steel and aluminum metal cookware can not cook by retained heat because the thinness of the metal cookware is not capable of storing any heat. When the heat is turned down and off in metal cookware the cooking stops.

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage may lead to cancer. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of the damage free radicals might otherwise cause. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C, E, and A, and other substances.

Here is a wonderful chart that breaks down the various sources of Antioxidants.
