One of my New Year's resolutions was to "make at least one new vegetarian meal each month and share my family's favorite recipes here on the blog."
Since the beginning of January I've made close to 10 new vegetarian recipes. Out of these 10 or so main dishes, a few were delicious, a couple were barely edible, and the remainder "would have been better with chicken", according to Tom.
Here are the five recipes I enjoyed enough to pass on:
Cook the tortellini according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cool water (so they won't stick to one another), and set aside.
While the tortellini are cooking, saute the red pepper, green pepper, and onion in olive oil in a very large skillet for approximately five minutes. Add the green peas (and minced garlic) and continue cooking for two more minutes.
To the vegetables, add the cooking creme, 1 c. of spaghetti sauce, the basil, the oregano, and the salt and pepper. If the sauce is too thick, add an additional 1/2 c. of spaghetti sauce.
Add the tortellini to the vegetables/sauce mixture and serve immediately.
I'm always looking for new vegetarian recipes, as well as interesting "themes" for my seasonal Kitchen Challenges, so if you have any great vegetarian go-to recipes or ideas about which kind of food I should challenge myself with next, please share!
