Well being Italian, I do love my Italian food.. but it is time to healthify some ingredients that are not so good for you.. Having cholestoral problems I had to find a good recipe and still enjoy what I so loved to eat my whole life..this is one I thought I'd share.. and it cuts back on all the butter down to 2 Tablespoons.. a big difference and only 330 calories in a serving..I also add a low cal. salad with it..
