We are counting down the days until christmas, with "gma's" 12 days of cooking. This is my favorite segment, of course. THIS MORNING, rocco DiSpirito is bringing us two recipes from "now eat this italian." You have taken all these recipes and made them not only lower in calories, but lower in fat. I'm so envious of thisroject for this book. You lived in italy. I did. With a bunch of italian mommas. I went to sorrento. I lived with 26 women, in their homes.

"Now eat this" in stores now. You can find the recipes also on
