In the FOXlight With Michael Tammero: Chef Rocco DiSpirito

Pasta, meatballs and lasagna: What if you could eat them all without feeling guilty about calories? Celebrity Chef Rocco DiSpirito says you can.

In his new book, “Now Eat This! Italian: Favorite Dishes from the Real Mamas of Italy--All Under 350 Calories," DiSpirito shares some favorite figure-friendly Italian dishes.

DiSpirito encourages people to cook for themselves using fresh ingredients and flavors instead of using store-bought options that are packed with preservatives.  “Anything you cook yourself you’re going to cook healthier,” he says.  “You’re probably going to use more vegetables, less butter, less sugar.”

According to FOXlight's Michael Tammero, reading the cookbook is “like a trip to Italy.” Buon appetito!
