Rocco DiSpirito Serves Up Lasagna Bolognese Ala Italian Mamma

Who doesn't love Italian food? American adaptations of Italian classics have taken on a flair of their own over the years, and along with the flair came the calories.

Rocco DiSpirito authored the New York Times best-seller Now Eat This! Italian in which he adresses that caloric problem, creating all the best Italian dishes for under 350 calories. In the book's accompanying video series, DiSpirito teams up with the foremost italian food experts--better known as Italian mamas. In the third installment of the series, he joins Lucia Ercolano, owner of Casa Alexia Cooking School and mother of two, in an attempt at a healthy, yet classically delicious Lasagna Bolognese.

Check out the video above and get the step by step recipe in the slideshow below.
