For the Love of Veggies

I have been craving some veggies lately.  While my husband was traveling this week, I creating some delicious dishes! 

I got the new Cooking Light magazine and was inspired by the Grilled Zucchini recipe.  With the new outdoor kitchen, I just had to try it out!  This is seriously the easiest thing to make.  Just slice zucchinis and toss them with olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, and put them on the grill!  I chopped up some fresh tomato and feta cheese and put the whole thing over bow-tie pasta for a quick meal.  Other variations in the magazine include combining grilled zucchini with fresh parsley, mint, lemon zest, and minced garlic.  Yum!

The other dish I made was couscous.  We had my friend, Kara, and her husband over for a Labor Day cookout over the weekend, and she brought this dish as a side.  It was so delicious, I had to try it myself.  Again, this was such an easy recipe.  I cooked Far East Couscous (pine nut flavor), and added halved grape tomatoes and feta cheese.  That's it and it is SOOO good!
