Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

To reduce the fat, we used extra-lean ground beef, light cheeses and only 1 egg instead of the 2. Basil and a touch of ground red pepper enhance the flavor.
