Grilled pumpkin lasagna I made last week with fresh grilled seasoned pumpkin slices, a bechamel sauce with roasted grated carrot, mushrooms and a ricotta mixture topped with cheese on Tinkyada Brown Rice Lasagna pasta noodles. Yummy!

The “dressing” of the week this week is actually more of a sauce. Lately, in an effort to get more protein into my diet I have been having a fried egg for breakfast. I had a mopey avocado remnant that nneeded using up as well as some yogurt that called my name and ended up in a tasty, easy sauce. Enjoy!
