Cutting Out Fat in Raviolis
Raviolis are pretty fatty. I mean, a ravioli is pasta filled with cheese. How can you possibly make that any healthier?
I found a way. If you opt for vegetable raviolis, you’re guaranteeing that you’ll be eating less cheese and more veggies. And that translates into a lower-fat option! And they’re even healthier if you can find a whole wheat version.
These raviolis are by no means fat free since they still contain cheese, but replacing the cheese with something lower in fat makes them substantially healthier (and substantially easier on your gallbladder)!
I found my whole wheat vegetable raviolis from Calandra’s in NJ, but I would bet that a lot of speciality Italian stores sell something similar.

Your gallbladder will love you more for eating healthier raviolis!
Cheesy, yes, but it gets the point across: You can still eat the foods you love by making simple modifications that lower the fat content without sacrificing the flavor.
