Hey Ya'll I'm back!! I generally prefer vacations on the open seas, but open heart hospitals sometimes offer more help when ya need it than fun!!

 

I saw lots of great food there that was so very heart healthy, unfortuneately for me, I didn't get a chance to eat for almost 48 hours! : ) So the news is that while I've shed a couple more pounds -it's definitely not the way I believe anyone should do it! :P

 

One new idea that Brittney, my daughter, decided to share with me is a new "Heart healthy? Pretzel"! It does have some sodium, but fairly low and the taste is pretty good! So if you don't have to watch sodium too closely, it might make a good snack, especially for the younger crowd for one of their afterschool snacks!

 

Thanks to EVERYONE! Especially, my cohort on the board, Kali, for taking over during my absence and getting this recipe topic rolling!! I'd also, like to Thank and Welcome all the newcomers during my absence for your contributions-please keep it up-We LOVE IT!! Hugs Always to you all, Teri

PASTA WITH VEGGIES

 

If you love Pasta than this is one for you... :P

 

 

1 lb. of Penne Rigate, cooked according to al dente directions

Olive Oil

1 can low sodium Vegetable Soup

Fresh cooked vegetables, or Frozen mixed vegetables, about 1 lb.

I Lg. can of Mushrooms drained and Rinsed, or fresh mushrooms cooked

3-4 garlic cloves, minced or used through a press

1/2-1 medium Onion, diced

Pinch of cayenne Pepper

Salt (optional)

Fresh ground black Pepper

Onion and Garlic Powder

All seasonings are to taste, start with 1/4 tsp. you can always add more. : )

Parmesian Cheese for grating at the end

 

On medium Heat:

In a large pan, add about 1/4 cup of Olive Oil and sautee vegetables with mushrooms and onions and seasonings. After vegetables wilt add garlic and continue sauteeing for about 30 sec. til you can smell the garlic aroma, you can also add more olive oil if mixture is starting to dry out too much. Add soup and cook til it just starts to boil, then add penne. Mix all together. Remove from Heat and grate Parmesian over all. Once again, if mixture needs it, drizzle a bit more Olive Oil over all.

 

You can interchange vegetables with this dish and if you want to add meat to the mixture, cut up some Low Fat Turkey sausage into bite sized pieces and cook right along with the veggies. This is one of my families favorite dishes and even Brittney will eat her vegetables!! LOL Kevin and Mark eat anything that I cook! : )

 

HAPPY PASTA!!

 

Teri :P

My Favorite Dinner

 

I like to throw some olive oil in a pan with a few cloves of garlic, sautee some slices of zucchini and big slices of mushroom. Just sear them a little, don't let the zucchini get mushy. Set aside. Throw in a couple of handfuls of raw shrimp, tails removed. Just barely brown them. Toss all of this with hot cooked thin spaghetti, al dente, some fresh basil (or dill, or oregano) and maybe a tbsp more olive oil if needed. I allow myself a little grated Parmesan ( It is my favorite dinner, after all)

 

I have played with this and had a ball with every veggie known to man, it is excellent with eggplant, squash, etc. You can even go ballistic and throw them all in! Just remember to cook whatever takes longest first, and the shrimp last.

 

I'm told this is heart healthy as long as you omit the cheese (sigh) and don't go overboard on the shrimp. (Lord, if I'm wrong about that, someone please tell me before I hurt myself.

 

A plate of this, a green salad with rice vinegar, and a nice German white wine.

 

heaven. :P
