Olive Garden recently added three tasty new dishes to its Lighter Italian Fare menu. As consumers become more concerned with the nutritional value of what they are eating, there is a growing demand for more health-conscious options. The latest additions to the Olive Garden menu allow consumers to enjoy their favorite dishes without worrying about consuming too many calories.

The latest additions to the Lighter Italian Fare menu include three dishes that are under 575 calories. Inspired by the rich flavors of Mediterranean cuisine, the dishes include Chicken Piccata, Tilapia Piccata and Shrimp Scampi. The first is a grilled chicken dish, topped with a lemon garlic butter sauce, capers and sundried tomatoes. The Tilapia Piccata consists of baked tilapia tossed with the same lemon garlic butter sauce. Finally, the Shrimp Scampi is a pasta dish topped with garlic sauce, tomatoes, asparagus and sauteed shrimp.
