    Hi Amy,
    You should check out Susan’s site. and her blog. She has hundreds of recipes listed. Some are hers and some are others have submitted. I have a few on my blog. My spaghetti sauce is pretty quick.

    Your blog is calming and peaceful. I think your beliefs and way of life come through in a very good way.

    Enjoy the day and hug a furry friend!

    Does salmon count?

    Lime juice

    Put it all in a pan (with a lid) and let simmer till the salmon’s flakey. SO GOOD.

    There was a time when I age vegetarian most the time. Here’s a quick and delicious Italian Polenta Bake cassarole — very good for cold winter nights.

    * Jar of your fav. spag. sauce
    * Add to it any veggies you like, browning them in a skillet such as: green peppers, black olives, mushrooms, onions, garlic
    * Dried Polenta
    * Follow instructions on Polenta package for basic polenta, but add more salt and add dried oregano and basil. Chopped sundried tomatoes would be yummy, too. You might want to double the recipe.
    *Once cooked, layer 1/3 of the polenta in a large cassarole dish, spraying with non-stick spray first (or brushing with olive oil)
    * Layer half your veggie sauce
    * Top with cheese of choice (I like parmesan)
    * 2nd layer of Polenta
    * The rest of the sauce on top of that, topped with cheese
    * Last 1/3 of the polenta, (sometimes I have only a couple globs left, but that’s OK)
    * Top with cheese
    If you have any remaining olives left, put a few slices for decoration. With your help, Ava could make a design, just keep her fingers away from the hot polenta
    Bake in a 350 oven for about 1/2 hour or until browned and bubbly.

    Yumm-O, as Rachael Ray would say! πŸ™‚

    Vivacious Vegan and Michelle – Thanks for the recipes! πŸ™‚

    Sheree’ – Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much and for the link to fatfreevegan. I will chk it out.

    Caroline – Salmon doesn’t count as vegetarian, but since we are still eating some meat (just trying to do more veggie meals) and I really like salmon so I will definitely try out that recipe some time. Thanks!

    Amy – Thanks for reminding me about polenta. I made a polenta lasagna quite a while ago and it was really tasty. While I was pregnant I had a weird aversion to polenta, but it doesn’t sound so bad anymore. πŸ™‚

    And thanks to everyone else who emailed me recipes and suggestions. Keep ’em coming!

    I made a veggie minestrone soup in the crockpot today (I chopped all the veggies up last night) and it was delicious. I’ll have to post the recipe and pics sometime. πŸ™‚
