Happy Meatless Monday!!! These Roasted Vegetable Stuffed Shells are a meatless version of stuffed shells that are also a freezer meal option.
This is the recipe that started my family’s conversion to willing vegetable eaters. When there is an abundance of vegetables they ask for it weekly and I don’t mind because it’s a fairly easy meal. I think it’s the caramelized onion, it makes them think they are having some diner food when really it’s all veggies. The bread helps too, use something fancier than your every day sandwich loaf, we like a multigrain from the bakery section of the grocery store.
My family LOVES Stromboli and I usually make it with lots and lots of sandwich meat. It tastes excellent but the sandwich meat is just not good for us. So continuing on my quest to make healthier meals I decided to make a Stromboli that was delicious but much, much healthier for us and so the Roasted Vegetable Stromboli was born!!! Chock full of vegetable goodness and melted mozzarella cheese it is a winner!! Perfect for a Meatless Monday Meal!!
For the first 26 years of our marriage Tom had an absolute whiny fit any time I served a Meatless Meal. It didn’t matter if it was pizza without pepperoni or sausage, or pasta with no meat, or any other meatless meal. He didn’t like it and just wasn’t having it!!! Then all of a sudden this year something happened – not only would he eat a Meatless Meal but he was requesting them!!! We’ve been eating at least 1 and more often multiple Meatless Meals a week for the last several months!!!
