Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Polenta

Polenta is an Italian dish derived from cornmeal. It can be served soft as a mush or firm, grill roasted. Usually it is thickened with cheese, Parmesan or gorgonzola, and butter. The secret to smooth polenta is in the attention to stirring on the stovetop. Polenta is usually accompanied with a tomato topping. It can be served as a side dish, first course or even for breakfast like grits, a southern American corn dish.

Italian Herb Spinach Artichoke Spaghetti Frittata

This fabulous recipe combines some of my favorite ingredients: Italian herbs and pasta.

The Gourmet Garden™ herb blends create a truly Mediterranean flavor that makes this dish something you’ll crave. Their blends have a fabulous aroma and taste without adding extra fat or calories.

Dreamfields spaghetti is a unique pasta creation. It has a lower glycemic index (the ability to raise blood sugar) with less useable carbohydrates and greater fiber.

The recipe is very low in cholesterol with the yellow color of coming from roasted yellow bell pepper instead of egg yolks. You will never miss the fat and cholesterol from the yolks.

It is best cooked in a frittata pan. You can also use two pans placed on top of each other. An average guy would use duct tape to secure the handles. This allows the “omelet” to be flipped completely, creating a crusty layer on each side.


The Carrot Dog

While not a Chicago Dog, the Carrot Dog has all the characteristics of a hot dog without the cholesterol, fat, unknown meat derivatives and nitrites. It’s fun on a bun!
