Show Us Your Life – Main Dishes

I’m linking up with Kelly at Kelly’s Korner.

We tend to make the same meals over and over each week. It doesn’t bother us too much because they’re meals we love, but I know we’re in a rut. I try to come up with new ideas, but I’m so very hesitant that I won’t like the dishes. I guess I just need to bite the bullet and try some new things!

Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite meatless main dishes with you.

Sloppy Joe’s

I never used to be a big fan of Sloppy Joe’s, but now? Now, I can’t seem to get enough of them. Seriously. I don’t know WHAT it is, but we eat them at least once a week (plus, you know, leftovers for lunch the next day).

We like our Sloppy Joe’s a little on the spicy side, so we add in onions and jalapenos. Yum! OK, now I’m craving one! What do you like to add to yours??

1 bag MorningStar Griller Crumbles
1 can Sloppy Joe sauce
1/2 onion
15 jalapeno slices (we used the jarred jalapenos)

Brown the Griller crumbles in a pan. Add the Sloppy Joe sauce, onion and jalapenos, and cook until hot.

Veggie Pasta

We have one restaurant in town that is our absolute favorite. It’s a locally-owned place, and they make the BEST pasta with veggies. I could eat it every day. But, since it’s kind of pricey to eat there — especially at dinner — I thought that I could probably recreate that dish. And, I did. And, it was fantastic. I mean, I know I’m biased, but I think it can rival the restaurant’s dish. :)

1 box penne pasta
1 zucchini
2 squash
1 package fresh mushrooms
1 onion
garlic cloves
1 head broccoli

Saute onion and garlic. Then, add other veggies and cook. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and toss with veggies.
