Which Is Worse? Italian Food Favorites

Worse: Meat Lasagna

The combination of cheese, meat and pasta is going to pack more calories and fat than chicken parmigiana -– even if you lighten it up by using low-fat cheeses. Chicken parmigiana is easier to adapt with healthy cooking techniques. “Use a corn flake crust instead of bread crumbs to save a few extra calories,” says Schantz. Bake the chicken instead of frying it to save fat as well as calories. If you’re ordering in a restaurant, the chicken parmigiana is still the better option as long as you watch your portion size -- one chicken breast is about the size of your fist. This will generally have fewer calories than a 4-inch square of lasagna. (Keep in mind that most restaurant servings are larger than this.)
