      Do I have recipes?!?! You bet! Tell you what- I will share a couple
      tried and true and then list others so you can tell me what you are
      interested in, ok?

      I’ll include recipes for the pasta and the
      tomatoes… as i have a lot of pasta recipes that don’t use
      tomatoes.

      crockpot chunky tomato soup
      hoppin’ john pasta
      vermicelli lo mein
      pasta with artichokes
      barbeque chicken pasta
      myo rice-a-roni- you could look this up yourself, i haven’t gotten a
      recipe to really work for me yet
      garlic chicken pasta
      i have a list of both warm and cold pasta tosses, that i may have
      even gotten from this list 😉
      whitefish and linguine w/ lemon-caper sauce
      nutty pasta twists
      nondairy macaroni and “cheese”
      cheese and pasta pie
      spaghetti vesuvius
      luscious layered dinner (a crockpot casserole)
      spaghetti peices could easily sub for pasta shapes in minestrone and
      similar italian soups- i have some recipes if you need them- and
      would also make a good chicken noodle soup- sorry, no recipe
      pistou veggie soup
      crock bean chili
      chili sin carne
      black bean soup

      simple italian herb pasta
      from two sisters cookbook- you can buy online
      this recipe made me very popular with dh’s co-workers, but he’s a
      little tired of it.

      1 lb. angel hair (or other) pasta
      1 1/2c. olive oil
      2 garlic cloves, minced (I double this or more)
      2t salt
      1 1/2t basil
      1t oregeno
      1t crushed rosemary
      1t thyme

      Cook and drain pasta. In a small bowl, combine remaining
      ingredients. Add oil mixture to pasta and toss well.

      To make an
      entree, add any of the following ingredients: sauteed broccoli, red
      peppers, carrots, black olives, sun-dried tomatoes or cauliflower.

      pasta topping (tnt)
      this is a great contrast- crunchy topping on soft noodles, and dh
      loves it!

      1/3 c. parmesan
      1 c. bread crumbs
      2T olive oil
      2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

      Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and
      garlic; drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over. Stir until breadcrumbs are
      golden brown, about 5 minutes.

      Remove from heat. Add Parmesan cheese
      and toss to blend. Set aside.

      Mexican-Style Bow Ties ** So good!! if you like tex-mex at all
      from Leanne Elly’s Menu-Mailer
      Serves 8

      8 ounces bow tie pasta (or whatever other pasta you prefer)
      8 ounces lean ground beef
      1 16-ounce can pinto beans — drained (or equivalent homemade, 2
      cups)
      1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
      1 teaspoon chili powder
      1 15-ounce can chopped tomatoes, undrained
      1 8-ounce cans whole kernel corn — drained
      1 small green bell pepper — chopped
      1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I use low-fat)
      1/2 cup sliced green onions
      1 cup low-fat sour cream
      1/2 cup salsa
      1/2 cup broken tortilla chips

      Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.

      In a medium skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Add beans, cumin
      and chili powder; heat through. In large bowl, combine pasta, meat
      mixture, tomatoes, corn, green pepper, cheese and onions.

      In small
      bowl, combine sour cream and salsa. Add to salad mixture and toss
      well. Serve warm, garnished with tortilla chips and additional salsa.

      Sodium. Exchanges: 2 1/2 Grain(Starch); 1 Lean Meat; 1/2 Vegetable;

      serving hints: this easy and fast to prepare skillet dinner would be
      great with a spinach salad. i make mine very simply with 1 clove
      pressed garlic, rice wine vinegar and olive oil (2:1) tossed well.
      Everyone loves it.

      Also, regarding the tomatoes, I’m sure you could substitute the
      diced and whole canned tomatoes for fresh tomatoes in many recipes.
      Check out https://southernfood.about.com/library/info/blcooks.htm,
      letter ‘T’ under food quantities and yeilds for how many cups to sub
      for one tomato, etc. Very helpful link :).

      HTH,
      Lindsey 🙂
