Roasted Beet Pesto! It's yummy and turns pasta pink, for Easter. I roast beets and garlic together (you can toss in raw garlic if you want the bite) and then puree with olive oil and pumpkin seeds (about 1/4 cup of each) You could add Parmesan too. Toss it with pasta and serve the pinky pasta over sauted greens. A nice plop of ricotta or cottage cheese looks nice on top with a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.

The American Diabetes Association published a cookbook called "Holiday Cookbook" by Betty Wedman, MS,RD. Mine is dated 1986. In it she has holiday meals, for veggies, vegans, and meat eaters. The recipes are good. She has meals for Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, Passover, Rosh Hashanah, and Shabbat, but not Easter. : ( You could adapt any of them for Easter, though. I'll pick one.
