Penne with Shrimp
This dish was quick and easy but I also modified it based on some of the other reviews. I think it would be bland without additional seasonings. I added crushed red pepper, 1 tablespoon of sugar, italian seasoning, no salt seasoning and broccoli. I only had crushed tomatoes and Moscato wine on hand but think it still tasted great. When I make this again I'll add mushrooms and sausage because we really like them. All in all it was tasty and well received in my house. I will definitely make this again.

Sangria! Sangria!
I didn't like this recipe, I LOVED it!! I made it for a graduation and it was gone in a few hours. Mind you I adjusted it to make 24 servings and there were only 6 people drinking. Needless to say it was a big hit and I know it will be requested over and over again. I only made a few variations, I used a combination of peach and cherry brandy, simple syrup instead of plain sugar and added fresh pineapple, various apples, pears and omitted the soda. It's a great warm weather drink that I will be making throughout the summer months. Definitely let it sit overnight, that's the key to bringing all of the flavors together.

Quick Black Beans and Rice
Really good flavor. I didn't have quick rice so it took a bit longer to cook. I used chicken broth instead of water in the rice to add more flavor. I also used mexican stewed tomatoes with jalapenos and added hot peppers to give it some kick. I didn't add the rice to the mixture until the end and let it all simmer for about 5-7 mins. Yummy!!
