Makeover - How We Did It
We've recreated this Italian classic using better-for-you ingredients to save you 130 calories and 14 g of fat, including 8 g of sat fat, per serving. We substituted part-skim ricotta, Cracker Barrel Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese and Kraft 100% Parmesan Light Grated Cheese. Then, we added spinach and mushrooms to the filling so we didn't need as much cheese.
