Meatless Monday #latepass: Wild Mushroom ravioli with lemon garlic pesto

For the Lenten season I have decided to give up all alcohol, forms of fast food and fried foods. This for me means no happy hours, no chicken wings and no afternoon chips..baked Lay’s are okay 🙂

With that being said, I got up early this am and decided to make my lunch. I found this recipe on Food Network and decided to add my own twist. I didn’t have any chicken breast or sausage to add so I figured this would be my ‘Meatless Monday’  Latepass edition.

Enjoy !
