I jumped on board the Meatless Monday movement a few months ago. Meatless Monday is a campaign encouraging people to improve their health and improve the health of the planet by lowering their meat consumption. I don’t eat red meat, but turkey and fish are often found on our dinner table.
There are so many different ways to green your Meatless Monday and most are relatively simple to incorporate into a meal. My Meatless Monday can (and does) happen any day of the week. There are so many great recipes out there that don’t include meat-thanks to Meatless Monday we have tried so many new foods.
We have a new Meatless Monday staple in our house. You’ll find this easy meal on our table at least once a week. My kids LOVE it and if you’re up to it you can get pretty creative with the add-ons.
Meatless Monday Pasta Bar
Instructions for your very own pasta bar:
Make pasta. Whole wheat pasta is our pasta of choice.
Put your favorite warm marinara sauce in a bowl on the table.
Set out a few different types of cheese.
Now for the veggies. Our favorite: organic roasted broccoli.
Add a few different types of organic beans.
Now it’s time to have some fun. Give everyone a bowl and let them mix and match to make their own perfect pasta dish.
What would you add to make the perfect meatless pasta dish?
