Manicotti, which means “muff” in Italian, are idea for filling with cheesy ricotta. Slices of eggplant mimic this pasta-free way to enjoy the same flavors you’ll find in the original recipe. Adding kale to the filling boosts nutrition, lowers calories and fat.

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

Crispy breaded chicken cutlets smothered with cheese and sauce really hits the spot when you’re craving Italian fare. My version is lightly cooked in olive oil instead of deep fried. The part-skim mozzarella shaves off quite a few calories and fat, making this chicken parm much healthier than the traditional version.
