One of the most amazing things about this absolutely delicious one-pan chicken pasta dish is the consistency of the sauce.

Gazpacho is an absolutely perfect appetizer (or light main course) on a hot summer day. Today, there are many "traditional" recipes out there. My recipe is not traditional...it's original and adjustable and works with ingredients we already have in our essential pantry. All we need are some fresh tomatoes and a cucumber from your garden or farmer's market. It's more of an idea of a recipe for you to make your own.

2 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, deseeded, and chopped
1 shallot, peeled and chopped
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
3 slices stale baguette
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt, more to taste
4 appetizers (plus 2 Bloody Marys)
