Thursday's Recipe Rodeo

I found this recipe through Yahoo recipes and it is a favorite in our house!! For more wonderful recipes visit my friend Nini's blog every Thursday. This week's Tortilla Soup is particularly delicious!!

Marinated Tomatoes with Linguine

1 lb linguine (or other long pasta)
6-8 small tomatoes
1 clove garlic (chopped or crushed)
1 T chopped basil
6 oz grated fresh mozzarella
olive oil to cover
salt and pepper

Bring a small pot of water to boil and submerge tomatoes for 30 seconds, then remove. Slit the skins with a knife; they should slip off easily. Halve the tomatoes and remove the pulp and the seeds. Chop the tomato flesh.

In a large serving bowl add the tomatoes, basil, garlic, and olive oil, salt, pepper to taste. Allow to marinate for at least 30 min, longer if possible.

Cook the pasta until al dente in salty water. Drain and add to the tomato mixture along with the grated mozzarella. Toss well and serve immediately. Serves 4.

Blog help please!

I just realized that the last post has an error and I can't figure out how to go back and fix it. Any help would be appreciated!

Oh, and the chicken recipe that I posted last time needs to be changed...the first ingredient should be GREEN ONIONS, not green beans. Must have had green beans on the brain. =-)

I got the following recipe from a Weight Watchers Cookbook and changed it just a bit. I love it served with a bit of rice and some garlic sauted green beans. Yum!!

Grilled Szechuan Chicken
1/2 cup chopped green beans
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce (reduced sodium)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 (6 oz each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Combine first 8 ingredients into a large ziplock bag. Add chicken; seal. Marinate in fridge 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade.

Grill approx. 5 min on each side or until done.

Serves 4
