Which Is Worse? Italian Food Favorites

Worse: Fettuccine Alfredo

Yes, the eggplant is fried. But that’s not enough to make it worse than the Alfredo sauce, which looks deceptively simple but is startlingly fat-packed when you look at the numbers. At the Olive Garden, the fettuccine Alfredo has 1,220 calories and 75 grams of fat, compared to 850 calories and 35 grams of fat in the eggplant parmigiana with spaghetti. Choose the eggplant, but remember to stick to one serving (a fist-sized amount each of eggplant and pasta).
