What we did

  • Left out the bacon, creating a delicious vegetarian dish.
  • Reduced the parmesan, which cut the saturated fat by 60 per cent and the sodium by 64 per cent
  • Swapped to wholemeal pasta, and useda little less, which nearly tripled the fibre and iron while cutting the kilojoules and carbs.
