    Hello, got a bit of a problem. Going to Ask Italian restaurant next Saturday and want to choose the healthiest and lowest calorie option but due to the menu changes I am unsure what would be best. Could anyone please enlighten me about the approximate calories of the following and which would be the best choices? Thanks.

    * Linguine alla vongole – Ribbons of pasta cooked with shell-on clams, garlic, white wine, chilli, red onion and Santos tomatoes, in this traditional Italian recipe. Lemon juice and zest give a final twist to a spicy dish.

    * Linguine gamberi e Rucola – King prawns sautéed in olive oil, in a garlic, tomato and white wine sauce with rocket and oven-roasted tomatoes.

    * Spaghetti al pomodo – Rich tomato sauce prepared to let its ingredients shine. Garlic, fresh basil and Santos tomatoes, with torn buffalo mozzarella and a final drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

    * Salmone Rustico – A fillet of Scottish salmon roasted with a sauce of cherry tomatoes, red onion, black olives and white wine. Served with sautéed garlic green beans, roasted new Charlotte potatoes and drizzled with pesto.
