Spicy Tomato Soup

1 cup spicy tomato juice 1 1/2 cup of tomato juice 1/2 cup of minced green pepper 2 tablespoons minced onion 3 tablespoon white wine 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 dash of hot sauce
Directions: This is a really easy soup.  Through all your ingredients into the pot and let simmer for 15 minutes.  Ready to serve, I like to put some croutons on top for some added crunch.  Another option is to puree and chill and serve like a gazpacho.

I know this is not a healthy soup.  It definitely has a lot of fat.  But think of it a special treat once in a while a treat is ok.  And this soup is really good.  
Directions: Melt butter in a sauce pan over low heat.  Add flour and stir until smooth.  Stir constantly until slightly golden. Slowly stir in milk and half and half.  Add cheese.  continue to stir while cooking over medium heat until thickened.  Add artichokes, crab, white wine and white pepper.  Simmer a couple of minutes and serve hot.   Enjoy this wonderful soup.

Quick Mediterranean Pasta Salad

1 box Whole Grain Linguine 1/2 pound of crumbled feta cheese 1 can of diced tomatoes with onion, basil and garlic
Directions:  Cook pasta according to directions.  Drain.  Mix in diced tomatoes and cool.  Mix in feta cheese and serve chilled.  However I will say my son loved this still warm.  He thought it was awesome and ate two bowls.  This is so fast and you can trow together in a snap.

Chicken Saltimbocca

This is really a simple and a very flavorful chicken.  I made it a little more kid friendly.
4 boneless skinless Hormone Free Chicken Breast 1 teaspoon of ground sage salt and pepper to taste  4 1/4 inch thick slices of havarti cheese 4 thin slices of prosciutto
Directions:  Take each chicken breast and season with salt and pepper on each side.  place in a baking dish and sprinkle each breast with 1/4 of a teaspoon of ground sage.  place a slice of cheese on top of each breast and then cover with slice  of prosciutto.  Bake in oven at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes or until chicken in cooked through.  Enjoy this was a big hit.
