Meatless Monday: Pesto Lasagne
Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?
If there's anything you should be hoarding right now, it's summer's fresh herbs. In a matter of weeks, they'll be gone, disappearing from the landscape just as the days start to seem shorter. Take action while you can with pesto. Make as much basil-based pesto as you can (ideally using pine nuts and pecorino). Reserve half of it to make Debi and Gabriele's rich vegetarian lasagne. Freeze the rest of the pesto in ice cube trays, so that you can store them until you want to add a bit of summery flavor on a cold winter day. And then enjoy this hearty dish and be happy that bathing suit season is officially over.
