The kabobs are pretty simple, and are great on the BBQ. You can add whatever vegies tickle your fancy, but for me peppers and onion always go great with steak. If you’re using wooden skures, remember to soak them in water for 10 minutes, or else they tend catch fire. Lesson learned :)

Italian Penne with Cherry Tomatoes

Add to Collection


This is a simple, fresh, one-dish meal to make use of those in-season cherry tomatoes. It's vegetarian as-is, but you can easily add chicken if you prefer.


  • 16 oz penne pasta
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • several basil leaves, sliced into strips (about 1/2 ounce)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • black pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan cheese, about 1/4 cup


Cook pasta according to package directions, then drain. While pasta is cooking, prepare the tomatoes, garlic and basil leaves.

Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon juice, basil, salt, oregano and pepper in a large bowl.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Add tomatoes and cook for another minute longer.

Add pasta and tomato/garlic mixture to the dressing in the bowl. Stir to combine, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve!
