Make Over My Meal: Lasagna Dinner

  • Comment Comments (1)

A diet expert takes a 704-calorie slice of lasagna and remakes it into a meal with salad, wine, strawberries, and Cool Whip -- all for 620 calories!

"My famous lasagna recipe always gets rave reviews. I layer the noodles with ground beef, shredded Italian cheeses, spaghetti sauce, and the secret ingredient: a packet of dry pesto seasoning. But I know it's way too high in fat and calories. Plus, I have no sense of portion control!"
-- Clare Trow, 31, Richmond, Virginia


"Take all the same ingredients and layer them on one cooked noodle at a time. Then roll up each noodle, top with a little more sauce and cheese, and bake. That way, you can give each person one preportioned serving. Make only as many as you need. Doing this saves enough calories to add a salad, a glass of wine, and dessert!"
-- Jackie Newgent, a registered dietitian and chef in New York City
