meatless monday: pumpkin cannelloni

since last christmas there has been a bag labeled “vegan pumpkin ravioli filling” in my freezer. well its fall and pumpkin season so i decided to make some pumpkin pasta. first i figured i’d do a ravioli but then i thought why not a cannelloni instead. i added some diaya spicy jack cheese to the filling mix, put a heavy dose of some vegan spicy red pepper alfredo sauce on the bottom of the pan and layered the top with more diaya provolone. a very happy pumpkin and vegan friendly meatless monday. it was even better because it turned into an impromptu dinner party. i seem to be having a lot of those lately. i get excited about meals i plan, i’ll start discussing them with friends when we are out and about, and the next thing i wind up saying is “you should come over for dinner!” i’m almost loving these dinner parties more than my planned ones.

meatless monday : something light

i love eggs

i love eggs

its the end of summer which means the end of platefuls of those summer fresh veggies that mean oh so wonderful light suppers. i feel like this meatless monday was my good-bye to summer. poached eggs with garden tomatoes and homemade bread toasted. so long warm nights, sun ripened veggies….hello crisp breezes and hearty soups!
