Meatless Monday– Food and Wine's Farfalle with Spring Vegetables

May 12, 2010

You can find the recipe here.

This was a surprising winner for our family’s Meatless Monday Challenge. I couldn’t face another black bean and Jeremy is a wee bit picky–but this recipe with it’s crunchy bread crumb topping won us over. 

I made a few modifications to simplify and save on time– using panko for the fresh white bread crumbs and adding 2 tbs melted smart balance for the buttery flavor. I used dried tarragon because I didn’t have fresh (just substitute 1/2 the amount called for). I also left out the peas (a bit sugary for me) and used barilla plus pasta for added protein and fiber.

The results were still incredible enough for Jeremy to eat three bowls and my blood sugar was EXCELLENT!

***Updated:  DUDE–just when I was feeling ok about pregnancy and how I look at 36 weeks….Claudia Schiffer comes along!
