As classic as lasagna is, it's not top of my mind during the summer. But summer ingredients like fresh herbs and dark, leafy greens make for such a tasty lasagna, you may want to rethink it as a summer dish.
This three-cheese lasagna with pesto and greens is not only a great way to use up a lot of summer produce you've been hoarding, it also keeps and reheats incredibly well throughout the week.
After weekends of sun and fun-filled BBQs and excessive feasting with friends, what I crave during the week is what people these days call "clean" eating.
I don't know how that label came about (does this mean we've been dirty eating all this time? hmm, maybe I shouldn't go there). But I do know that when I stay away from dairy and bread, and when I eat vegetables, legumes, and simple protein like shrimp, my body feels not so weighed down. Do you ever find that to be true for you?
This is a summer salad perfect for those midweek cravings for something light yet still filling. And it only takes 20 minutes to make, if that.
