Tanya's Tasty Tips: Meal Makeover (Grilled Veal Parmesan)

I love veal parmesan, but the customary recipe calls for breading and fried cutlets-a no-no if you're trying to eat healthy. This grilled version offers the same flavors without the extra fat and calories. You save 500 calories and 14 grams of fat!

Ingredients_ 4 4-oz. boneless veal cutlet Salt and pepper 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp dried oregano 1/3 cup prepared marinara sauce 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions: 1. Place veal cutlets in between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and flatten with a meat mallet until 1/4 inch thick. 2. Season both sides of the cutlets with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. 3. Preheat the broiler and heat a grill pan and grill cutlets 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and place on a baking sheet. 4. Add 1 tbsp marinara sauce to each cutlet and top with 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Place under the broiler and cook until cheese is bubbly and begins to brown. Serve immediately.
