Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Multigrain or whole grain pasta can be substituted for the regular pasta. Cook as directed on box, adding broccoli during last 4 minutes of cooking time.
