Hearty Italian Recipes Made Healthier

Winter calls for hearty dinners, and these lightened-up versions of comforting Italian favorites will warm you up on a cold night.

There's a reason why Italian food is so often synonymous with comfort food - pasta, pizza, tomato sauce and bubbly cheese is everything we want in a soul-warming meal. These recipes answer the comfort-food-call all while remaining healthy and nutritious!

 

vegetable bolognese

Vegetable Bolognese

This bolognese brings on savory flavor through loads of veggies. You still get the pasta and the cheese - but replacing meat with vegetables gives this dish tons of nutritional heft.

 

Sundried Tomato Soup

A thick and creamy tomato soup with no cream in sight? It's true. Sun-dried tomatoes and white beans are the secret stars of this cozy meal.

 

Chicken Bocconcini 

Essentially the Italian version of chicken nuggets, these crispy little bites of chicken (or "tidbits," as bocconcini translates) don't require any frying, and they're ready in minutes. Dunk them in marinara, use them to top a salad - anything goes with this versatile recipe.

Vegetable Stuffed Shells

All the cozy baked pasta vibes, with a nutritional boost from lentils and hidden veggies!

 

Gluten Free Chicken Milanese

This version of Chicken Milanese has all of that crispy factor with none of the wheat!

 

Healthier Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parm gets a makeover! This lightened up version gets flavor from a fresh herb oil that gives the chicken a golden brown crust.
