Anyone who has attempted to create mouth-watering Italian dishes knows how difficult it is to maintain that luscious flavor without sacrificing one’s waistline! Rocco Dispirito, a young and exciting chef, has assembled dozens of tempting recipes that are low fat, low calorie, yet retain the flavor of typical Italian cuisine.
Sample marinated mushrooms, pasta salad prima vera, Italian ice, cannolis, delectable steak pizzaiola or chicken cacciatore. Best of all, Mr. Dispirito introduces us to genuine Italian mamas, who provided not only their recipes, but also great tips to shorten preparation time and enhance the eye appeal of each dish. Perfect book for a cook who wants a little variety.
