This Week on Kwik Cook "Garden Pasta & Lavender Iced Tea"~By Jenny Baxter of Jennys Kitchen

Well, the garden is ready to be harvested and you are wondering what to do with your abundance of tomatoes, basil and corn. Canning and freezing are your standard methods, along with cooking salsa, pastas sauces, pestos etc. These preparations can be time consuming and with all the heat we have been experiencing many of you do not wish to go back into the kitchen to make dinner. So how does a ten minute meal AND a use for your produce sound? Just continue to read and I will share a meal that allows you to “kill two birds with one stone!” And as an added bonus how refreshing would a lavender ice tea be on these scorching summer evenings?....
