Like most things, Italian food has also undergone many changes. For ages, it was ruled by fatty cheese and cream recipes. But with time and changing tastes, not only do we now see a wide range of recipes but also revamped versions of all-time favorites. Those dishes that my mom used to make are now transformed in low-fat dishes and thanks to the new version that we can indulge in eating without a guilt. Stuffed flounder Florentine is one such recipe that reminds me my olden childhod days but its transformed version is now my kids favorite. Inspite of all changes, the true spirit of Italian food is still alive in my kitchen!
