Pasta Primavera with Cauliflower Sauce

Rating: 4 stars 27
If you're not using a high-protein pasta, you can double the protein per serving by adding 8 ounces cooked and sliced chicken breast. Double the sauce in Step 1 to keep the dish creamy.

Chef John's Pasta Primavera

Pasta primavera is quite a straightforward recipe; spaghetti or fettuccine tossed with an array of fresh spring vegetables. When done right, this is one of the year's great seasonal recipes. This looks, smells, and tastes like a cool, sunny spring day.

Italian Vegetable Fusilli with Basil Mint Pesto

I spotted a box of fusilli pasta in my pantry and immediately decided to make an Italian dish with green vegetables and a pesto! My Italian vegetable fusilli with basil mint pesto was amazing, if I can say so myself.

Pasta with Broccoli Rabe (Cima di Rapa)

Rating: 5 stars 1
This is a very popular winter dish in Italy. Broccoli rabe is sauteed then tossed with anchovies, garlic, bread crumbs and grated Pecorino Siciliano cheese. This version was given to me by a Sicilian friend. Enjoy with a nice hearty red wine and you'll be ready for any winter weather! Garnish with a little more bread crumbs and grated cheese.

Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 187
Slices of Granny Smith apple in a grilled cheese sandwich add sweet, tart notes to a savory favorite. My mother taught me this recipe, and it has become one of my favorite quick meals. I find that Granny Smith apples work best, and I like to use crunchy seed bread.
