Meatless Meal Ideas

The Lenten Season has begun. Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter recognized in the Christian calendar. Those who partake in Lent may follow a number of different rules. One of those rules is fasting from meat on Ash Wednesday and every Friday until Easter. Although this sounds simple, sometimes you don’t realize how difficult it may be and how easy it is to forget. We’ve got all the perfect meatless options to make Friday meals easy, delicious, and something to look forward to!

If you want some fun ways to mix it up while keeping away from meat, check out these 6 ideas:

Eggplant Parmigiana

A classic and delicious meal idea! Layers of eggplant, marinara sauce, and mozzarella, it’s full of flavor and one of the best comfort foods! Pick up a pre-made one in our prepared foods section or make your own!

Want to make your own, but in a time crunch? Grab our homemade marinara sauce, some of our breaded eggplant from our prepared foods section, a bag of Caputo shredded Mozzarella, then layer, bake in the oven, and enjoy!

Pizza or Panzerotti

Get the whole family involved and make your own pizza or panzerotti! We offer all the ingredients you need for a homemade pizza night. You can stop by our prepared foods section for homemade dough, sauce, veggies, toppings, and more! You can even use our dough to make your own panzerotti which are delicious baked or fried. It’s great bonding and just a fun night… especially if you make a nutella pizza for dessert!

Don’t have time to make it yourself? Grab one of our 16” take and bake pizzas or a few of our homemade panzerotti for dinner. It’s an easy dinner that everyone will love.


Versatile, easy, and delicious– three words we love to hear when it comes to meal time! While pasta seems like a basic dish, you can get creative with it! Our aisles are full of different pasta options- short or long, fresh or frozen, imported or domestic. Once you choose what pasta cut, then you move on to the sauce- our homemade supreme sauce, classic tomato sauce, arrabiata, and so many more. Looking for extra flavor? You can easily add veggies to any pasta dish or a protein like shrimp.  With so many different combinations to try, pasta dishes will never get boring! 

A Caprese

A caprese is a simple, yet customizable sandwich! A simple caprese is basil, tomato, and mozarella in a sandwich. What’s great is you can make it customizable through the bread and by adding different toppings. You can add an olive tapenade or spread, sub sandwich dressing, pesto sauce, or even a flavored olive oil!


Not only is seafood a good meatless option, there are plenty of health benefits! Fish is filled with omega 3s and different nutrients that your body craves. Our extensive fish department will help you find just what you’re looking for.Fish can be eaten as meals or can be added to different dishes for great flavors– seafood risotto, pasta with clams, or just a simply grilled salmon are all great dishes with lots of flavor!

Fish can be intimidating to cook, but we can make it easy! We offer a variety of pre-marinated seafood options. They are full of flavor and all you have to do is put it in the oven and pick your sides. Try out
