meatless supper #4

I'm participating in Enviromom's Meatless Supper Club and already we are at the halfway point! Last week I mentioned that I wanted to branch out and try new recipes this week, but it just didn't work out. Do you ever try to find a new recipe at the last minute, only to be frustrated by long lists of unfamiliar looking ingredients and the liklihood of having to stop at more than one store just to find everything? That happens to me sometimes, and it is so not what I am wanting in my life right now. I just want simple ingredients and not to buy anything that I'll use a teaspoon of and then have sit in the fridge indefinitely. So, I bring you this: pesto pasta. Not terribly original, but so good and healthy and very simple. I follow this recipe and it is delicious and a hit with the little boys. (By the way, if you haven't checked out Bread and Honey, you are in for a treat. I love Alicia and her cool recipes). I added zucchini and tomato from the garden, since the garden is still producing.
Yummy. What meatless meals are you loving right now?

We're very much into Fall so our favorite right now is roasted root veggies, green beans and corn muffins.

Hmmmnn,that meatless supper club sounds rather fun (and challenging). We make meatless pizza on occasion. That's usually quick and has an easy ingredients list.
