Ever wonder how the formerly overweight but now super-svelte Joe Bastianich—restaurateur, TV star and son of Italian-American cooking legend Lidia Bastianich—stays so fit while still enjoying his favorite Italian dishes? He hasn't sworn off pasta. In fact, in this upcoming cookbook, Bastianich and his sister, Tanya, share 100 healthy pasta recipes, each less than 500 calories per serving. The idea is simple: Start with high-quality pasta, combine it with flavor-packed, low-calorie ingredients—think capers and dried mushrooms—and use techniques that maximize flavor without adding fat. You still need to keep portions in check and can't get away with eating pasta every night, but now you can dig—nearly guilt free—into classics like Spaghetti Bolognese and Rigatoni alla Norma.
