Looking for your favorite comfort food recipes made healthy.

I look for simple substitutions when I'm craving a comfort food but don't want to go all out with the ingredients. For example, creamed spinach is a major comfort food in my book--instead of using cream I make a roux and add low-fat milk and a touch of evaporated milk. All of the creamy flavor and texture, but I've saved some calories.

Another easy change is to use whole grain/whole wheat pasta, bulk up recipes with veggies, etc.

Portion control is another way to manage--IMO as long as a recipe is made with whole food ingredients then portion control is the best way to manage the calorie part of healty...

I am hoping that Santa brings me the boxed set of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." I don't have any of the classics and I've been on a Julia Child kick lately!
