Yummy Times Recommends:

 

Fettuccine Terrazza

To prepare this dish, the chef uses approximately one handful of prawns, two cups of vegetables (including delicious oven-roasted pumpkin), one cup of fettuccine, and small quantities of stock and healthy oil. Therefore, the dish is high in protein, fibre, and antioxidants, and moderate in carbohydrates and fat. Although prawns contain cholesterol, the elevated cholesterol in our bodies is a result of excessive saturated fat intake - not the consumption of cholesterol. Therefore, having a few prawns sometimes is not going to do any harm to your health. Unlike many other Italian fettuccine meals, this dish contains no cream, therefore celebrating fresh and healthy flavours. Since the nut-free dish is in line with the Australian recommended meal plate portion guideline, it receives five Yummy Stars.

Calamari Pizzaiola

It is common to see deep-fried calamari on menus, but is this the only method to cook calamari? No! There are much healthier ways to prepare calamari – and this dish is a good example. By including lots of vegetables and spices in the recipe, the dish is high in protein, fibre, vitamin C and other antioxidants. The (optional) two slices of bread served with the hotpot provide a moderate portion of carbohydrates to the meal. However, the serving size of the calamari is a bit bigger than the recommendation. Since calamari contains cholesterol, a bigger serve may not be suitable for people who are concerned about their heart health. Therefore, Yummy Times Group has given 4.5 stars to this dish.
