Meatless Monday is ending with one last meal that is delicious, healthy, and can be
prepped in less than thirty minutes! Baked pasta with vegetables is a great starter
recipe that can be personalized for anyone. The best part is being able to get your
vegetables in while eating something that makes you feel like it is way too good to
Vegetables hold all those important vitamins and nutrients that help keep our body
running right. In this recipe we use squash, zucchini, onions, and bell peppers which
can be found at your local farmer’s market. Not there or don’t have time? Frozen works
just as well! Not a fan of those vegetables? Never fear! Substitute them for the ones
you like. Spinach, mushrooms, and onions is my go-to! Try adding vegetables into your
other favorite dishes to liven it up and add a more nutrient.
