Lemon & Garlic Green Beans

Lemon & Garlic Green Beans by John Spottiswood

It is rare to have a side dish which everyone keeps reaching for instead of the main dish. That's especially true if its a fairly simple green vegetable side. But these green beans were truly that good. We used packaged, thin french cut green beans from Trader Joes. They are tender and tasty on their own, but I've never had them taste…

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad by John Spottiswood

This recipe is adapted from one by Susan Spungen. I thought it was phenomenal. If you can't find Farro, you coud substitute brown rice or pearl barley, but get Farro if you can. It's wonderful. You might consider serving this as a side for Thanksgiving. It would make a great addition.

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is one of my favorites. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. It is full of flavor and the shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized if you pan sear them as described. We tried two different recipes the same night and compared side by side. This was the consensus, but not…

Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Penne Alfredo with Italian Sausage and Zucchini by Denise Sherin

I had this dish at a local diner and loved it. So I recreated it at home it's an easy tasty dish. It looks like you spent a lot of time making it and it comes together so easily. In this picture I used just zucchini but I have made it with summer squash or a mix of both, whatever I have on hand, and it's great.

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce

Sauteed Zucchini in Homemade Tomato Sauce by Denise Sherin

I love homemade tomato sauce, it's so much better than jarred sauce. As a summer side dish I add sauteed zucchini, it's so yummy. I recently served it as a side with baked cod and we wound up putting it right over the fish it was terrific!

We use Barilla Plus pasta, which is made with chickpeas just like Maxine recommends. By skipping making your own pasta, this becomes a very easy and healthy dish.
