Tips for Lighter Lasagna
Drastically cut fat and calories with a few simple tips and substitutions, and eat cheesy lasagna without guilt.
• Replace full-fat cheeses with reduced-fat and part-skim cheeses. • Reduce the amount of cheese in a traditional recipe by 1/3 to 1/2. • Use lean ground beef or try turkey sausage or a meatless sausage. • Omit the meat altogether and make a veggie lasagna. • Pay attention to portion size, even with a low-fat lasagna.
