I've tried going without animal products a couple of times in my life, but I never lasted more than a few months at a time. I still have a desire though, to add more meatless meals to my family's diet. I think it's good for our health and our budget. My hubby likes to have lots of protein, and my two youngest are finicky, so it can be challenging for me to come up with pleasing meatless meal ideas, but with so many resources these days, I think it will be do-able.
I would love for this to be a regular Monday posting, with a new and tasty vegetarian dinner idea each week, but we'll see if I can keep up that pace.
My first veggie dinner recipe that I have for you is Lemon Ricotta Pasta with Red Peppers and Spinach by Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.
This dish has ricotta cheese, red peppers, garlic, lemon and spinach mixed with fettuccine noodles and crushed red pepper flakes, and I have to say, it was a hit at our house! My oldest was scraping the pan to get every last bit!
