Penne with Eggplant Sauce
A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
We gave normally evil pasta carbonara a healthy remake, by substituting turkey bacon, omitting the cream and using omega eggs and pasta. Still indulgent, but an indulgence you can afford on a regular basis!
