Colorful Spinach and Prosciutto Side
Great colorful side dish that's easy to make and bursting with flavor. You can also sprinkle some of your favorite Italian cheese on top when finished.
Chef John's Rocket Beans
Rocket is another name for arugula. I love to use it as an herb, but don't buy it in the herb section of the supermarket; buy it in the lettuce section. This is an incredibly fast, incredibly simple, but satisfying rustic bean side dish.Sponsored By [object Object]
Peppers Roasted with Garlic, Basil and Tomatoes
This is a bright, beautiful, and very simple vegetarian dish. The secret of the sophisticated flavor is in the herb vinegar. I like to use white vinegar flavored with sprigs of tarragon.
This garlic asparagus dish is a Northern Italian side dish. My family loves it! Even the kids!
How to Make Perfect Polenta
Polenta is nothing more than coarsely ground cornmeal. The classic ratio is 1 part polenta to 4 parts water, but I like to measure the polenta just a little scant of a full cup. I often use chicken broth instead of water. It's a perfect base for any kind of saucy meat or mushroom ragout.Sponsored By [object Object]
