Ashlyn Campisi's Siwrly Whirly Zucchini Pasta

Ingredients:

3-5 zucchinis, washed
1 cup of grape or cherry tomatoes
1/2 tsp of lemon zest
2 1/2 tbsp. of lemon juice
3 tbsp. of roasted pine nuts
1 pinch each of salt and pepper for seasoning
1 pinch each of garlic powder and onion powder
1 pinch of oregano
1 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp. of olive oil (divided)

Directions:

1. First, wash and cut zucchini into pasta-style noodles with a kitchen tool or knife.

2. Next, wash and dry the grape or cherry tomatoes. Put them in a medium saucepan with 1 tbsp. of olive oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan). Add a pinch of oregano, the two cloves of chopped garlic as well as a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute the tomatoes for 5-8 minutes, pour in a bowl and set aside.

3. Take the zucchini pasta and put it in the saucepan with 1 tbsp. of olive oil (just enough to coat the pan and noodles lightly), add the pinches of garlic powder and onion powder as well as the salt and pepper to the zucchini pasta.

4. Cook the zucchini pasta for 5-7 minutes (less time if you want it crunchy).

5. If there is water from the zucchini pasta, drain the water. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest to the zucchini pasta and toss together.

6. Finally, add the roasted pine nuts and sauteed tomatoes to your swirly whirly zucchini pasta and serve.

New Year’s Eve Black-Eyed Peas
 
1 lb. Organic Black Eyed Peas, dried 
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Onion, 1/4 inch dice
1 Tbsp Fresh Garlic, minced 
1 cup Tomato Confiture (recipe follows)
3 Bay Leaves 
2 tsp Fresh Thyme, roughly chopped
2 Smoked Ham Hocks
2 qt. Organic Low Sodium Chicken Stock
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
 
Directions:
Place the black-eyed peas in a large pot with about 3 quarts of water over medium heat. Bring the water to a boil and then lower to a simmer. Allow cooking for about 30-45 minutes or until the peas are tender, not mushy. Strain the peas and reserve the remaining liquid and set aside.
Next, place the ham hocks in a large pot with the remaining pea liquid and 2 quarts of chicken broth. Bring the liquid to a boil and lower to a simmer. Allow cooking for about 3 hours or until the ham hocks are tender and the meat pulls away from the bone(you may have to add water periodically to the pot). Remove the ham hocks from the stock, reserving the remaining liquid and set aside. Remove all of the meat from the bone and roughly chop, set aside. 
Place a large sauce pot over medium heat with the 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the diced onions and cook until translucent. Next add the chopped garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the black-eyed peas, tomato confiture, bay leaves and ham hock along with the remaining reserved liquid. Cook on low to medium heat for about 30 minutes and season to taste with sea salt and black pepper.
