I am often asked about ways to transition to a vegetarian diet. A good transition for some people could be trying a lacto-vegetarian meal plan, focusing on plant foods but allowing consumption of cheese and other dairy products — opting for the low-fat or skim varieties as a healthier choice.
This recipe is an example of an easy-to-make lacto-vegetarian summer meal using seasonal ingredients. In addition, you can substitute different veggies depending on local availability and personal preferences.

*For a lower sodium version, use low-fat or skim Swiss cheese instead of mozzarella.
