Meatless Monday: Vegetarian canneloni

Hey pixels!! I know, if you’re vegetarian (or flexitarian) it’s Meatless Monday every day. But even if you’re not, why not dedicate one day to enjoy your veggies instead of meat and fish? There are thousands of awesome meatless recipes to try, as you may see here.


Today’s one is a canneloni recipe. I love lassagnas and cannelonis. I love pasta. I can’t live without this awesome dishes in my diet. They are tasteful, full of vitamins and proteins, and covered with a layer of amazing grated cheese.

Actually, I tried lassagna for the first time because I saw on TV how Garfield was eating one. I wondered how a lassagna would taste, and I asked mom to make one. The best decision ever. It was love at first sight, and nowadays my romance with this dish is stronger than ever. The same with canneloni. Simply I love them.
