While vegetables can be great very simply prepared - especially when fresh and in season.

This recipe for Zucchini and Sun Dried Tomato is simple to prepare, and makes a great side dish for chicken, pork and fish. Give it a try, and hope you enjoy it!

An Italian Meatball is a great and wonderful thing. Traditionally, I make my meatballs with a mixture of beef and pork, but when I’m trying to make them a bit lighter, a bit healthier, I go for ground turkey.
