vegetarian shepherd’s pie

One of our 2016 goals is to incorporate more meatless Monday’s into our weeknight dinners. We’re big on chicken and fish in our house but my oldest son loves his veggies, so why not use that to my advantage?! Here’s a vegetarian take on Shepherd’s Pie that won’t leave you missing the meat! Hearty mushrooms and lentils are filling, while garlicky mashed potatoes give the feel of traditional Shepherd’s Pie with bold, layer flavors. Here’s my meatless Monday Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie.

It may not look like much, but there’s a ton of flavor packed in this one little dish!

Summer Weather Takes on Italian Classics

And these days, when a craving strikes, I’m sent spinning on a mission to make it happen. So this week, I aimed to “summer”-fy two of my favorite dishes. Here are my summer-takes on Lasagna and Meatball Parm Subs.
