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.

Pollo in porchetta

Pollo in porchetta by Frank Fariello

When I served this dish, several of my dinner guests were wondering what the 'secret' ingredient was that have this roast chicken such a special flavor. Of course, rotisserie chicken is almost always wonderfully juicy and luscious, but pollo in porchetta--chicken prepared in the manner of roast suckling pig--is something else.

Pasta with Tomato and Roasted Eggplant

Pasta with Tomato and Roasted Eggplant by Nancy Miyasaki

A adapted this from a recipe in Alice Waters' Chez Panisse Vegetables cookbook. My other eggplant pasta dishes all call for fried eggplant, which is delicious but messy and time consuming. So I was eager to try a roasted version. I slightly prefer the flavor of the traditional, fried eggplant, but given the reduction in effort I…

Caesar Asparagus, Low in Calories, Big on Deliciousness

Caesar Asparagus, Low in Calories, Big on Deliciousness by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

I’ve never been so excited about a vegetable dish before but this one is worth raving about. It’s just like the classic salad but it’s made with roasted asparagus instead of lettuce. I’m keeping it skinny by making homemade multi-grain croutons and drizzling with a delicious light Caesar dressing. The skinny for each serving is 95…
