Everyday Low-Cholesterol Meals

Healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner


Pasta E Fagioli by Nigella Lawson: “This is that lifesaving, thick, pasta-and-bean meal of a soup as sung about by Dean Martin in ‘That’s Amore.’ It’s just the thing you want to eat when the rain’s battering against the windowpanes and just what you need to cook to make you feel that you’re safe and warm, happy and occupied within.” Per serving: 393 calories, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g saturated fat. 

Linguine With Tomato Clam Sauce by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigitte Hafner: “Versions of this popular classic shellfish dish of thin linguine and clams are cooked all along the Italian Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts. Good with crusty Italian bread.” Per serving: 558 calories, 3 mg cholesterol, 1 g saturated fat.

Stewed Beans by Mario Batali: “A chef who will serve stewed beans with a glass of 1972 Vega Sicilia knows that simple is best, that less is more, that understated is sophisticated.” Per serving: 281 calories, 0 mg cholesterol, 0 g saturated fat.

Udon Noodle Soup by James Beard: “The Japanese make a specialty of hearty soups full of thick, slippery udon noodles. Make them yourself or buy them in an Asian grocery. And be sure that the broth is dense with good things to eat.” Per serving: 94 calories, 4 mg cholesterol, 0 g saturated fat.

Aromatic Vegetable Curry by Sheila Lukins: “There is no cuisine more alive to the delicious possibilities of vegetables than Indian. Because so many Hindus are vegetarians, they have found ways to prepare vegetables that are extraordinary. The selection used here is quite typical of those found in local markets in India.” Per serving: 297 calories, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g saturated fat.
