Continuing with meat free [or meatless] Monday here are two more recipes and a link to the MFM campaign site for your perusal:  Meat Free Monday campaign.

These recipes [that I have not yet tried] are from the California Department of Health Services. Enjoy!

  1. #1 is just what I'd love for dinner! I have found the whole wheat pasta to be even tastier and more satisfying than regular old pasta.

  2. The first one is what I'd like for dinner!

  3. What a great idea. While I love meat too it would just be nice to have a meat free dinner once a week. I think you have inspired me to do just that! even 2x a week would be nice.

  4. I srsly don't think I've ever cooked with radishes - I am missing out!! Ditto what BV said about the whole wheat pasta - I'm hooked on that now, much more so than brown rice which I still can't stomach. Great recipes!! Hope you are doing well my friend :-)
