With the price of meat nowadays, we're looking more and more to good hearty meatless meals.

This sounds so good, and this weekend is the perfect time to give it a good try.

Thank you.

Deeli, this is a perfect side to go with the grilled chicken we're eating more and more often these days. Our son would have to grill a pork chop for himself, but the rest of us eat a lot more chicken in the summertime especially.

More and more, I've come to appreciate pasta without meat cooked with it anyway.

Thank you for sharing.
