Creamy Zucchini with Linguine
This was a good base recipe but needed more oomph or it'd be too bland for me. I added bacon and sautéed it first, put it aside when crispy and then used the fat (I know it's terrible but so yummy). I added extra EVOO around 1 1/2 tablespoons)(eyeballed it) and sautéed the zucchini and asparagus for around 10 minutes. I then added leftover fresh spinach, sautéed just wilted, added 1 cup of half & half with a splash of white wine, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 1/2 teaspoon of red chilli powder. Simmered for around 7-10 minutes. Finally, I added the cooked thin spaghetti and mixed it with 1/4 cup or so of parmesan. Served it with more parmesan on top. It was really good but with the amount of fat and cheese that I put in it, it can only be on the menu once a month!

Garlic Bread Mama Rita's Way!
Yum! Easy to make and fast! Had this for lunch today with soup. I made some modifications and used what I had on hand. Used honey wheat bread and topped it with mozzarella instead. It was almost pizza-like. I baked it for 5 minutes and then broiled for a minute as the edges started to burn after that. I'm going to make it again for my husband to go with our meatball/tomato sauce penne tonight.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken
Love this recipe but I substituted butter with olive oil and used less than half a cup. This was because I used chicken thigh with skin so that was fatty enough. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added some honey to the marinade, I also used garlic powder instead of minced garlic and baked the chicken on a bed of onions for 40 minutes. I then finished it off by broiling the chicken (without the onions) for 3 minutes on each side. I served it with potato salad. It was delicious and my husband loved it.
