I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Veggie Pasta With Italian Chicken Sausage


2 small zucchini
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

2. In a separate pan over medium heat, heat remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and add garlic. Sauté for a minute, and then add the tomatoes and oregano. Simmer for a few minutes, and then stir in the sausage.

3. Spoon sauce over zucchini. Sprinkle with Parmesan to taste.
