Hot Dish

Tired of turkey? I bet. Jeans getting a little snug? I bet. That post-holiday stuff-and-puff syndrome means a tired palate and a tight wardrobe. To relieve both, I suggest Natura, especially, from its winter menu, the artichoke lasagna, packed with protein (29 grams), but not with fat (15 grams), full of flavor (four stars) that won't fatten (389 calories). It's made with fresh pasta, baby artichokes, and artichoke puree, with ricotta, parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses on a tart tomato sauce. Do yourself a favor.
