A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
Penne with Eggplant Sauce
We gave normally evil pasta carbonara a healthy remake, by substituting turkey bacon, omitting the cream and using omega eggs and pasta. Still indulgent, but an indulgence you can afford on a regular basis!
Spaghetti with Peas and Peameal Bacon
Colourful and delicious, this warming dish makes a satisfying meal on a cold night.
This classic Italian dish takes very little time to prepare. It’s kid-friendly, too, with no obvious vegetables to pick out at the table.
Easy Weeknight Broccoli Pasta
Broccoli is a nutritional powerhouse- it offers fibre, calcium, vitamins and phytochemicals. One bunch of broccoli is made up of several heads; one head is one individual stem plus its crown. You only need one head for this recipe.
Deep-fried chickpea croquettes called falafel are a Middle Eastern specialty and are also a popular street food in Canada’s urban areas. Here we form falafel mixture into patties instead of croquettes and reduce the fat by frying in a nonstick pan.
We named this lightning because you can make it a flash! In the true Italian manner, the dish is sparsely sauced keeping the emphasis on the pasta. Buy a bag of prewashed baby spinach to keep the preparation time down.
Teriyaki Tofu Noodle Bowl
Double the teriyaki, with our teriyaki tofu and our teriyaki marinade! A beautiful and colourful presentation.
Creamy Tomato Sauce with Pasta
A quick and easy pasta for a weeknight. Evaporated milk adds wonderful creaminess to the sauce, as well as making this a good source of calcium with 260 mg per serving.
Pasta with Zucchini Rounds
A wonderfully fresh pasta toss that can be made year-round. Coarsely grating the Parmigiano creates lovely melting bits in the finished dish.
