Cookbook author and television show host Sunny Anderson is stopping by the TODAY kitchen to share her quick and easy recipes for a classic Italian dinner.

She shows us how to make grilled chicken Parmesan and herbed peppery pasta without ever turning on the oven.

"Craving chicken parm, but don't want to blow your calorie budget? Then this is the recipe for you! Juicy grilled chicken breasts get sprinkled with breadcrumbs and topped with sauce and mozzarella," says Anderson. "This gives you all the classic flavors with less fat since there's no frying needed."
