Thumbs up on this frozen dinner for being low in fat and sodium!
We recently discovered Celentano Light Cheese Ravioli in our grocer’s freezer. Per serving: 220 calories, 2 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 25 mg cholesterol, 180 mg sodium. The fat and sodium content are very impressive for a frozen food - and they are easy to prepare and taste delicious - just the ticket for a very busy day. They are not whole grain - but a good choice when you want a frozen dinner. We did use a no-added-salt
pasta sauce. They were served with a huge green salad and fresh steamed broccoli.
FMI see rosina.com or look in your grocer’s freezer. Many frozen ravioli brands are pretty acceptable with regards to fat and salt - but you have to read the label.
Judy’s passion for cooking began with helping her grandmother make raisin oatmeal for breakfast. From there she earned her first food service job at 15, was accepted to the world famous Culinary Institute of America at 18 (where she graduated second in her class), and went on to the Fachschule Richemont in Switzerland where she focused on pastry arts and baking. But after learning that the quality of a croissant directly varies with how much butter it has, Judy sought to challenge herself by coming up with recipes that were as healthy as they were tasty.
Judy received The Culinary Institute of America’s Pro Chef II certification, the American Culinary Federation Bronze Medal, Gold Medal, and ACF Chef of the Year. Her enthusiasm for eating nutritiously and deliciously leads her to constantly innovate and use the latest in nutritional science to guide her creativity, from putting new twists on fajitas to adapting Italian brownies to include ingredients like toasted nuts and cooked honey. Judy’s publishing company, Food and Health Communications, is dedicated to her vision that everyone can make food that tastes as good as it is for you.
