These recipes are designed to be more in line with the way Italians eat rather than Italian Americans. Eating the Italian way means incorporating more vegetables and healthy fats into your recipes and eating less meat.

Do you want to trim down this summer? Then, trim some calories from your recipes. Trimming calories, however, doesn’t mean trimming flavor. These reinvented Italian classics are an excellent example of how to do this type of makeover.

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Calorie savers in this recipe: egg whites instead of a whole egg; eggplant is baked, not fried and no oil is used in cooking.

I like to serve this dish with olive oil mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach.

4 servings

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
  • 1 large eggplant (1 ½ pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ cups panko crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
