Summertime...and the cooking is easy!

Campanelle pasta...chicken breasts cut up into bite size pieces, cooked
in olive oil and garlic.  Meanwhile, cut up 12 cherry or grape tomatoes
 put in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh basil.  Cover and let set
until juices meld together.  Cook pasta.  Place pasta in pan with chicken. 
Mix with drippings from pan.  Add pasta.  Next add
tomato mixture.  Toss.  Sprinkle with Parmesan and...

Two Sisters recipe for "Fresh Corn and Tomato Salad" on page 88  with a new Southwestern flare.
Instead of basil use cilantro.  Add a can of rinsed black beans and...
there you have it!  A new twist to one of my favorite summer recipes.

Marinated flank steak with grilled peppers.  You can purchase these
colorful peppers in a bag.  Toss in a little olive oil and some spices . 
You can put them on wooden skewers.  Just make sure you soak the
skewers in water first or they'll burn.

A delicious plate of Southwestern fare!  Yummy, colorful, pretty to look at
and so wonderful to taste!  This is a real crowd pleaser
And...don't forget the Sangria!!

Oh, here are the little peppers on skewers!  A fun and simple
idea for any meal anytime of year.
