This is amazing!
1/2 package of Gluten free spaghetti - boiled per package instructions (Delallo is the best).
1 bunch of asparagus. Washed with ends cut.
1 small container of kalamata olives pitted.
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese.
4 basil leaves chopped.
2 tbsp olive oil.
Himalayan sea salt.

Grilled asparagus:
Preheat grill to high heat.
Fold a large piece of foil in half turning all sides up. This will keep asparagus from sliding off.
Lay asparagus in a single layer into foil.
Drizzle with remaining olive oil.
Sprinkle generously with salt.
Grill approx 4 minutes - turning halfway thru. Asparagus should be firm and bright green.
Chop into 2-3 inch pieces.
Drain boiled pasta and drizzle with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Gluten free pasta is very delicate. This will keep it from sticking together.

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and eat it!!!!

Add grilled chicken:
Add grilled shrimp:

Straight from the FitChick garden. Yes we grew these gorgeous little tomato gems and basil leaves. Now if only we could "grow" burrata cheese!

Throw all 3 on a plate with Baker & Olive Eureka Lemon Olive Oil and sea salt.

Marinate chops 2-4 hours in marinade
Preheat grill on high med/high heat
Discard marinade and sprinkle both sides of chops generously with seasoning.
Grill 6 minutes per side or until firm to touch and blackened.
Remove from grill and cover with foil for 10 minutes. This will allow juices to settle.
Throw shrooms and tomatoes in a bowl. Toss with olive oil and salt.
Place on doubled up tin foil. Fold the edges up so veggies don't fall off. This also helps for picking it up.
Place the veggies on the foil on the grill. Grill for 5-6 minutes with the top closed.
