Week Day Highlights

Farmer's Market Succotash
(served with chicken sausage links, not shown)

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter, optional
1 small onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 ears corn, or 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 (10-ounce) package frozen lima beans, thawed
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
s&p

If using ears of corn, cut the kernels off and set aside.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers, season with s&p; cook, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the corn, lima beans, and tomatoes, season with s&p; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes.



Three Cheese and Chicken Pizza

Toppings: low fat ricotta cheese, italian seasoning, diced red onions, garlic cloves, diced chicken, mozarella cheese, and parmesean cheese. These same toppings would also be great on top of pesto instead of the ricotta. (Check previous posts for cooking details)
