Three Cheese Tortellini with Butternut Squash – A Fall Meatless Monday Recipe

With Thanksgiving (and therefore lots of over-indulging ) around the corner, I am making extra sure to mix in some lighter meals over the next few weeks. Though with the tortellini this is surely not a 'low calorie' meal, I think it is a much healthier alternative to a pasta dish smothered in meat and a heavy-duty cream sauce! It however still hits all the fall comfort marks, and is a great vegetarian recipe. I hope you enjoy!

Meatless Monday – Cauliflower Alfredo Pasta w/Garden Fresh Green Peas

This healthy Alfredo Sauce recipe uses a cauliflower and broth base, instead of butter and cream. It does still have some cheese, but is far healthier than the alternative. I mixed in some summer peas and made this dish as my Meatless Monday dinner. I hope you enjoy this very easy recipe!
