Shape Up with A One-Pot Pierogy Meal
(NAPSA) - Hearty stick-to-your-ribs dinners are appealing to just about everyone. But if they're starting to stick to your hips and tummy, too, it may be time to lighten up your cooking by cutting back on meat. It's easy to create healthful meals when you start with a package of frozen Mrs. T's
Pierogies. These tasty, potato-filled pasta pockets are naturally high in complex carbohydrates and low in fat-which means they supply energy and nutrients while keeping fat and calories under control. This speedy skillet dinner pairs up the classic flavors of potatoes and cabbage. A small amount of lean Canadian bacon adds a rich smokiness to this combo. Pierogies with Cabbage and Canadian Bacon tastes meaty enough to fill you up-without filling you out!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided

In a large skillet, over high heat, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil. Add bacon; cook and stir until

and stir for 1 minute. Add broth; cover and simmer until cabbage is lightly browned and tender,
about 10 minutes.
