Ellie Krieger uses low-fat milk to lighten up this decadent dish, but she adds garlic and creamy Parmesan cheese to maintain its full flavors and traditional textures. Slices of sautéed zucchini offer layers of bright color and healthy freshness to this easy 30-minute recipe.
For a light but satisfying side dish, serve Michael Chiarello’s Frisee Salad With Spiced Walnuts, Pears, Farmhouse Cheddar and Port Vinaigrette. Sugar-coated walnuts are tossed in a cayenne-cinnamon mixture and add a sweet and spicy crunch to the bed of greens, fresh fruit and rich cheddar shavings.
