Take supper outside with a delicious menu that promises great tastes and easy prep for any casual get-together. You won't miss the fat or the calories in these scrumptious recipes. We've even given you a luscious treat for dessert--low-fat Cheesecake Tarts. They offer the richness of regular cheesecake in every lightened bite. Slices of fresh fruit on top provide extra goodness.
