Pantry Makeovers Help Shape Menus And Waistlines
(NAPSA) - With spring on the horizon and one in three Americans
To get the pantry focused on healthier spring fare, take a look at snack foods, condiments and canned goods. For starters, stock up on baked varieties of potato or tortilla chips instead of fried. Exchange candy bars and cookies for dried fruits and nuts. When you want butter flavor without fat, try a butter substitute such as Molly McButter(r) Natural Butter Flavor Sprinkles. Instead of keeping cream-based soups on hand, replace them with broth-based alternatives such as chicken noodle, vegetable and French onion.
To help keep spring eating light and tasty, here are additional suggestions for slimming down the pantry and fridge:
Heat vegetable stock and combine with Molly McButter(r). Set aside.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.
Heat olive oil in large skillet, add zucchini and cook for a few minutes.
Add tomatoes and garlic, cook for a few minutes more.
Add hot pasta and spinach, stir briefly just until spinach starts to turn bright green.
Add stock and mix well.
Remove from heat, stir in Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
