Penne With Garlic Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
Went pretty fast :) I used about half of the vegetable stock and added some olive oil. Also, instead of using whole tomatoes I tossed the pasta with sliced sun-dried tomoatoes and small cubes of chicken sauteed with a hint of crushed red pepper. I tried to save some leftovers, but they were swiped before I could get the container into the fridge ;)

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
If you you are using this as a health or diet smoothie, do NOT replace the flax seeds with flax seed oil as some of the commenters suggest. I did some research before trying this smoothie, and although flax seeds are a great source of fiber and protein, flax seed oil is mostly just fat and not nearly as good for you. Some things I did try changing: which fruits I used (kept it seasonal for $ reasons), plain greek yogurt for regular yogurt (makes a VERY creamy, "heftier" smoothie with more protein but less calcium), 1 1/2 tsp honey for 1 tsp because my husband likes it a little sweeter. We also always use almond milk (unflavored) instead of skim milk because we usually buy things in large quantities to save money but don't really like skim milk, so the rest of it kept going to waste. Almond milk works well and we know it will get used before it goes bad. It does make the whole thing taste a little "nuttier" for obvious reasons, though, so if the flax seeds are turning you off, the almond milk probably will too. The contributor is correct - this really is an all-around good smoothie!
