Spaghetti squash. It blew my mind. Who knew you could make a vegetable act like a pasta?! The best part is that you can make it in the microwave in under 10 minutes.
Tofu-lentil "meatballs" are the vegetarian's (or the person-who-recently-watched-Forks-Over-Knives) answer to meatballs. These aren't a perfect match for the red meat version, but they are good! I used plenty of red pepper flakes, fresh parsley, and garlic to make it feel more Italian. The addition of liquid smoke (found at Whole Foods) was awesome too.
