Black Bean Corn Salad


Ingredients:

1 can black beans, drained
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
2 tomatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
2 avocados, diced
2 tbsps. olive oil
2 tbsps. malt vinegar
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together. Serve as a side dish. I served mine over lettuce with a grilled chicken breast for a complete meal, but I like it so much I could eat it by itself. Refrigerate leftovers.

Chicken Spinach Pasta Recipe

Chicken Spinach Pasta Recipe


Sometimes I make up recipes based on what I have in the house. This is one of those kind of recipes. I buy a lot of my canned goods at Sam's by the case so I usually have a good stock in the pantry. I also like to buy meats and meat products when they are on sale and store them in the freezer.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 pkg. Tyson grilled chicken strips
2-4oz. or 1 8oz. can sliced mushrooms
   (you could also use fresh mushrooms if you prefer)
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. basil
Parmesan cheese

-----
1-16 oz. box rotini noodles
1 tbsp. salt

Directions:
 
In a large saucepan put olive oil, onion, and chicken strips. Cover with lid and let cook until onion is clear and chicken strips are thawed. Add the remaining ingredients for the sauce and let it simmer. Boil water for pasta and add 1 tbsp. of salt to the water. Cook pasta according to directions on box. I like to cook the pasta until it is barely cooked, then drain it and add it to the pasta sauce. Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Enjoy,
Deborah
