Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Makeover - How We Did It
We've recreated this Italian classic using better-for-you ingredients to save you 160 calories and 12g of fat, including 6g of sat fat, per serving. The changes included substituting POLLY-O Natural Part Skim Ricotta Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese for the full-fat products. In addition, we added spinach and mushrooms to the filling so we could reduce the cheese.
Tip 2
Variation
Substitute BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Cottage Cheese for the ricotta cheese and KRAFT 100% Grated Romano Cheese for the Parmesan cheese.
Tip 3
Substitute
Substitute frozen chopped broccoli for the spinach.
Tip 4
Nutrition Bonus
The combination of ricotta and 2% mozzarella cheeses provides calcium in this delicious, low-calorie meal. And as a bonus, the spinach is high in vitamin A.
