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.

Pulled Pork

My husband says that pork is the food of the gods and I think most men would agree! Last time I made pulled pork for my neighbor Claudio’s birthday party, we saw 30 pounds of pulled pork vanish in just under 2 hours. Watch your fingers ladies when you set this out for your next party.

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.

Salmon Cakes

Salmon Cakes

Serve salmon cakes on top of a lightly dressed mesclun or baby spinach salad. Sprinkle fresh chopped chives and enjoy as an alfresco lunch or the start to an elegant meal. Fish lovers will be hooked on this tasty preparation. A great way to use up leftover white wine and extra fresh herbs, these cakes also freeze beautifully.
