Start lowering your carbon footprint on ‘Meatless Mondays’ with these dishes.
It is so important to not only help the planet but to also maintain (or reduce) our waistlines by having at least one meat-free meal a week. I have many more than that and I love sharing them here for your inspiration.
This pasta is a shocking pink/purple colour, and all the better for it!
I’m a bit of a sucker for all things pink and red. If you ask any of my friends and family, they’ll happily tell you the majority of my clothes and personal items are all 50 shades of pink (or more)!

To be honest, the cake you’re looking for probably doesn’t need to satisfy all those requirements, but I’ve made one anyway!
