It's all about Cumin
I just love the taste of Cumin, the smell of it, and really, I just discovered it. (I told you I'm no seasoned pro! I'm still learning!) My husband is such a fan of the smoky flavor that he pretty much uses it in anything he decides to cook (I usually make him cook for us on the weekends because I tend to get burnout from the week!). Last weekend it was Cumin-flavored pork chops. Yum. This week he's considering grilling some Cumin-flavored Chicken breasts and making some sort of Mexican feast for us.
Mexican and Italian foods are very common in this household, just because of the ease of what I am used to cooking as well as the tasty herbs and spices, but I'm considering buying the Chia Herb Gardens so I don't have to constantly run back and forth from the store for Basil, Rosemary, Chives and such.
Steering away from the Cumin topic...
This recipe here I found on All Recipes looks good and is in the "Diabetic recipes" top 20 recipe section:

- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place the penne pasta in the pot, cook 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
