Tomato Basil Pasta
This recipe is light and delicious. I made a few changes. I sauteed the garlic and onions in the olive oil. I then added 1 pint of grape tomatoes, added salt and pepper, and let them cook until they started to burst. This really adds a punch and thickens the sauce a little. I rolled the basil leaves up together and julienned them instead of leaving them whole and added this to the tomato mixture. I let this sit until I cooked the pasta. I drained the pasta and ran cold water over it to get it to room temperature. Put the pasta in a bowl and added the Parmesan Cheese. I buy marinated feta cheese from a local stand. Mix the parmesan and feta with the pasta and then add the tomato mixture. Very tasty!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew
This recipe was delicious! The only thing I changed was to add 1 cup of chicken broth and instead of using bouillon cubes, I used chicken base which is like a paste. Also, the next time, I will add a little less pepper. Otherwise, my husband and friends loved this recipe. I will be taking this to church at our next social.
