we are not in any way vegetarian and we don't deliberately make meals that are vegetarian, we just eat what we fancy and then realise after eating it that it didn't happen to have meat in it. Anyway, family favourites are: Egg curry Macaroni cheese Ratatouille and rice Cheese soufflé Frittata Aubergine parmigiana Stuffed peppers Vegetable crumble Mushroom stroganoff Egg Florentine Pasta with spinach and cream cheese sauce Pasta and pesto
