Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli
I read most of the reviews on this...it came up as recipe of the day...I saw some ..well most say 'bland' and had ideas to spice it up...adding more onion was one idea ...garlic powder...well I left all the ingredients alone for one...adding more garlic cloves...total of 4...and I did take the suggestion of one reviewer of the red peppers...so I roasted my two peppers and let them rest in a closed container so they could cool/ steam before I chopped them...Also ...as the recipe said to puree all...I only roughly chopped my veggies...why do the work of a machine...one big change too was I added my spices while cooking my onions...and I can tell you my sauce is anything but bland...it has a big kick at the end....I think this is a good veg head recipe and if you add sausage or chicken it can fit anyone...thanks!:-)

Italian Breaded Pork Chops
This was a new twist for me to make pork chops...I found that I really did not need 3 eggs...or 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs....I also did not have dried parsley so I used the fresh flat leaf I had in the frig...I served it with a fresh made red sauce / pasta and fresh veggies....overall a good dish I will try again...It was a good jumping off point....Yum
