Olive Oil This ingredient is the first choice for lean and clean cooking oils. It has a nice mild olive flavor and it’s loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids which promote heart health. If you prefer to use another cold-pressed vegetable or nut oil you can swap for that ingredient as needed.

Dried Parsley Parsley has an irresistible leafy smell and flavor. It’s a great culinary herb to grow and dry yourself. It has very easy care and drying herbs is as easy as leaving them in the sun!

Garlic Powder Amazing garlic powder adds concentrated garlic flavor and aroma to make this dish smell even more tantalizing!

Grated Parmesan Parmesan Reggiano is the traditional Italian form of this cheese and it is better than the rest so be on the lookout for that name on the label! Whenever you’re using parmesan it’s a good idea to buy a wedge or wheel and grate it yourself. Some containers of pre-grated cheese have additives but with a wedge or wheel, you get a more authentic and pure product.

Salt and Pepper This simple seasoning duo is all you need to finish this meal with some flair! However if you want to add a little color, flavor, or flair to this dish you can toss on an extra pinch of your favorite dried seasonings, like basil or oregano.
