Kraft Kitchens Tips

Makeover - How We Did It
We've recreated this Italian classic using better-for-you ingredients to save you 160 calories and 12g of fat, including 6g of sat fat, per serving. The changes included substituting POLLY-O Natural Part Skim Ricotta Cheese and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Mozzarella Cheese for the full-fat products. In addition, we added spinach and mushrooms to the filling so we could reduce the cheese.
Variation
Substitute BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Cottage Cheese for the ricotta cheese and KRAFT 100% Grated Romano Cheese for the Parmesan cheese.
Substitute
Substitute frozen chopped broccoli for the spinach.
