Parchment Salmon Packages with Asparagus
These elegant packets look complicated, yet are quite simple to prepare. A seasoned salmon fillet is placed onto asparagus spears and wrapped in parchment paper using a French cooking method known as 'en papillote'.

Mushroom-Stuffed Chicken Breasts in a Balsamic Pan Sauce
When you're shopping, try to find the smaller, more attractive 10- to 12-ounce bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts. The 1-pound ones work fine, too: Just give them a good fist-pounding to flatten them a bit before stuffing (and you may want to split this size between two guests).
Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne
