Last night's dinner was so redeeming after Can Can/Couldn't Couldn't night, that I just had to share the pictures!

So Easy Gazpacho
2 C freshly juiced tomato juice
4 med tomatoes, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 C chopped cucumber
1/3 C finely chopped sweet onion
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1/4 C cider vinegar
1 t sugar
1 garlic clove, minced fine on micro plane grater
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper

In large bowl, combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours until chilled. Serve in 1/2 pint jars or decorative soup dishes, with sour dough bread on the side.

Roasted Butternut Linguine

4C cubed, peeled butternut squash
1 medium red onion, chopped
3T olive oil
1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 lb uncooked linguine
2C shredded kale
1T water or olive oil for steaming/pan frying kale
1T minced fresh sage
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
Put squash, onions, olive oil and spices in a 1 qt zip lock bag. Shake until well coated. Turn out on baking sheet, and place in preheated oven. Bake 25 minutes or until squash is tender, turning to brown. Meantime, steam kale in fry pan with either water or olive oil until bright green and tender, but not limp. Set aside. Cook linguine per package directions, drain and place in large bowl. Top with squash mixture and kale. Toss to combine.

Both recipes from August/September 2010 Taste of Home Magazine
