Make Better Pantry Pasta With Bouillon

Purple Sprouting Broccoli on Pasta

Serving Size: 4 Ingredients: 14 ounces (dry) pasta (orechiette, castellane or even penne) 4 tablespoons olive oil 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced 1 organic lemon, zest and juice 1½ pounds purple sprouting broccoli ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes salt a...

Nonna Nerina pasta experience

Over the past three years, travelers have been making the trek to the small town of Palombara Sabina, about an hour north of Rome, to make pasta with an Italian grandma who goes simply by Nonna Nerina. It started when her granddaughter, Chiara Nicolanti, set up an Airbnb Experiences page. It quickly grew, drawing international press and groups more than willing to take a train ride to Italy’s countryside. Nicolanti even recruited other grandmas in the village to take part, and the additional ...

Add Crème Fraîche to Your Macaroni and Cheese

A few weeks ago, in an attempt to breathe new life into some leftovers, I added a dollop of crème fraîche to a bowl of pork ragu. It melted, forming a creamy, tomato-y sauce that was very rich and very delicious. “I bet this would slap in some mac and cheese,” I thought. Read more...

Tagliatelle with Mushroom and Tofu Ragù

Late winter/early spring is a difficult time for fresh foods up north. We still have some winter vegetables like kale, savoy cabbage and parsnips in the garden, but it will be a while longer before fresh green vegetables are ready to be enjoyed. Therefor, mushrooms are a delightful opportunity for tasty meals at this time of the year. Serving Size: 4 Ingredients: 1 pound brown mushrooms, cleaned and sliced or quartered 1 pound tofu, blotted dry and cubed 4 shallots, (or 1 large white onion) 1 ...

Want great vegetables? Cook them in meat

There’s a Korean restaurant in Los Angeles, Ham Hung, that makes the best stewed potatoes and carrots I’ve ever had. Vegetables are usually an afterthought on a pork bulgogi plate, but at Ham Hung they play in the same stadium as the main meal. Every time I eat them, it blows my mind that these boring, basic bitch…Read more...

Pasta with Kale and White Beans

This is one of our favorite meals which we usually eat over the winter months. This time we used a special German heirloom kale variety called ‘Lippische Palme‘. During the winter this kale turns into a dark violet-green color. It looks lovely in the garden, is healthy and tastes great in many meals. Serving Size: 4 Ingredients: 8 ounces pasta, we used whole wheat penne 1 bunch 14 ounce kale 2 tablespoons cooking oil 1 red bell pepper, de-seeded and cut in bite sized pieces 1 medium onion 2 cl...

Pearls of Wisdom

Some dishes just have no right to be so good. They’re too simple, too ordinary, too easy to yield such spectacular results. No matter how uninspired the ingredients look on paper, a jolt of bold flavor belies such humble components. It’s the kind of dish that makes you what magic has conspired in the kitchen, or perhaps, some secret MSG is spiking the punch. Such is the case for the curried couscous salad at Mendocino Farms. The creamy, golden yellow pasta pearls don’t even look vegan at a glanc...

Put Pasta Toppings on Your Beans

Drinking straws that are made of pasta

Do we really hate paper straws so much that drinking through pasta seems reasonable? Apparently so! Because here are Italian-made Stroodles. Their selling points: They're edible, vegan, made for cold drinks, have a shelf life of three years, and don't get soggy. Just don't give them to someone with celiac disease -- these are wheat! If pasta isn't your thing, try these straws made of rice, hay, sugar cane, bamboo, ice, or metal. I guess the message is, "leave plastic straws behind." (Geekologi...

Pasta Bolognese

A while back I made Meatballs Subs because I had a craving. They’re not that difficult to make and when you make them at home, you can use better ingredients than the versions you get elsewhere. Fortunately, there’s good bread in France and no shortage of cheese. And meatballs aren’t much of a challenge to make either. (Interestingly, a few weeks after I posted that recipe, an American woman living in Paris came up to me and said, “I don’t know how you knew, but I was craving the exact same thi...

Imperfect Pasta is the Secret to Perfect Pasta Salad

Like other entries in the “carbs coated in mayo” category of side dishes, pasta salad is incredibly polarizing. When it’s good, I can’t stop eating it; when it’s bad, it’s inedible. I’ve found that the secret to really good pasta salad isn’t homemade mayo or a good jar of pickles—it’s really bad pasta. Specifically,…Read more...
