I use applesauce to replace oil in baking. I also use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs in meatloaf. I am not sure if it saves many calories, but it is more healthful

I like to sub vegetables for pasta.

Squash for macaroni to make mac and cheese.
Zucchini or eggplant for lasagna noodles in lasagna.
Spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles for linguini.
