Oh man, it was hard enough to chose one the first time around!

It's a tough decision for me, trying to decide between 1 and 3. But, I think I'm going with number 1. Yep, that's my official vote.

Janet said...

Add my vote for Justine's spinach bowtie pasta!

thanks.

laura said...

It's a tough choice between 1 & 4... but my vote is for #1.

Although, I do wish she offered an alternative so we could use fresh mushrooms. I'm going to give the recipe a shot with fresh (maybe cooking them first, to get rid of the excess water?).

Thanks for the fun contest! I love reading new recipes. Yum.

I have to vote for 2. Tara's Turkey Black Bean Sloppy Joes in Acorn Squash Bowls -- it sounds SO healthy and delicious, and maybe it'll be just the thing to get my husband over his irrational hatred of squash.
