Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli by John Spottiswood

This roasted broccoli recipe, adapted from the Barefoot Contessa, is really wonderful. It has a lot of flavor. We served it with a mild pasta, and it was just a wonderful combination. Don't be worried by the lemon juice and zest. They impart a subtle flavor that adds a nice dimension to this dish.

Basil Pesto Spread

Basil Pesto Spread by Salad Foodie

Summer’s remaining basil harvest can become the makings of delicious pesto to serve on crackers or crusty bread. And it does freeze well too for uses into the fall season and beyond. Easy to make and very nutritious compared to many typical spreads.
