Vegetarian Pasta e Fagioli, Butternut Squash and Bacon Macaroni and Cheese and Quinoa Vegetable Soup are just a few of the dishes in this week’s healthy meal plan!
This week is all about comfort food.
Comfort food can be so many different things to different people. For instance, that Quinoa Vegetable Soup is 100% comfort food to me. Now don’t get me wrong, I eat soup all year long, but this one is hearty (healthy) and filling. And that Pasta e Fagioli looks so comforting, doesn’t it?
Side note: Pasta e Fagioli is my all time favorite soup. Ever. But why do they always have to throw pancetta in there? I get it, that’s the classic way to prepare it, but enough already! I don’t want pancetta! And I can’t wait to make this one.
This week’s dishes are all warm and comforting, because let’s remember, fall is here!

I told you this week’s theme was comfort food! The weather will (hopefully) be getting cooler and I predict more soups and stews in the future! What will you make first?
