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…

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.

Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…

Parmigiana di melanzane (Eggplant Parmesan)

Parmigiana di melanzane (Eggplant Parmesan) by Frank Fariello

Being a lover of good food, I find it almost impossible to answer the question 'what's your favorite dish?' But if I had to, my answer would probably be eggplant parmesan--parmigiana di melanzane--the way Angelina used to make it. This is a simple dish to make, but it involves several steps. Allow yourself a good two hours to…

Roasted Eggplant

Roasted Eggplant by Evil Fairy

This is a dish you can serve as a side,bubbling hot,over pasta or cold with pita bread. You can either leave skin on or peel. You can also do on the stove,only you will need more oil. Eggplant acts as a sponge and will soak up all the oil. You use much less oil when you roast it.

Italian Steak Salad

Italian Steak Salad by John Spottiswood

We adapted this from a Giada De Laurentis recipe. It's simple, but incredibly delicious. Our kids powered through more than we imagined possible. No leftovers at all! The biggest change was serving the steak hot of the grill instead of chilled. That makes a huge positive difference I think...as the warm steak contrasts wonderfully…

Vegetable Lasagna

Vegetable Lasagna by Salad Foodie

Lasagna laced with garden vegetables makes a healthier pasta alternative to traditional lasagna. Don’t let the list of ingredients daunt you. I just consider it my afternoon therapy session. The veggies are cut in small pieces to layer better between noodles. As usual, this is way better the next day than the first (and even 2 or 3…
