After the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit dedicated to both healthier lives and the environment, released their Dirty Dozen last week (a list of the veggies and fruits that contain the most pesticide residues) some people question again the cost versus the safety and healthfulness of their food purchases. Of course we can’t live in fear of every morsel we put into our mouths, but it is important to take notice of key foods we consume on a regular basis that can pose a high health risk.
Nutrition wise, this is a one dish meal packed with protein, fiber, calcium, beta carotene, antioxidants, and hard-to-get vitamin D—not only from the cheese; Portabella mushrooms are a good source too. A food processor makes short order of the veggie prep. This lasagna serves up well on nights when people are coming and going on different schedules. Buon Appetito!
