Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of…

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home

Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…

I’m going on a pizza making journey and this is stop number one! This recipe is one I have perfected over the years through lots of trial and error and even more tasting. The crust is crunchy on the outside but also a bit chewy. I think it’s wonderful and it always gets rave reviews. If you’ve never made your own pizza dough…

Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan

Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan by myra byanka

Easy to prepare, lower calorie version of this dish. For maximum tenderness, I recommend brining the breasts in 2 qts. water and 1/2 C table salt for 1 to 1 1/2 hours and rinsing them in cold water for several minutes. Or, take a kitchen mallet or rolling pin and put the whammy on 'em.
