What makes this dish great is its simplicity. Traditional cacio e pepe doesn’t include greens, but I find some arugula lightens up the dish. Feel free to swap the arugula for peas or asparagus spears or even artichoke hearts. It’s an all-in-one meal, no salad needed!
Pink peppercorns make these grilled scallop skewers beautiful and summery—as if you’re eating a spicy rose petal. You could serve this with (or atop) an arugula salad. Add a squeeze of juice from a grilled lemon half if you like.
What a treat these were during our recent visit to Newman’s Own in Westport, CT. If you’re not a fan of wasabi in the salsa, feel free to skip it.
Buddha bowls are simple to make and jam-packed with filling nutrients and vitamins that nourish and protect your brain.
Tagliata is Italian for sliced steak. You’ll find it on nearly every Italian restaurant menu. But it’s easy to make at home, and a great choice for an unfussy meal. (Sometimes it’s also a good way to make one steak feed two.) Flank steak makes a great tagliata. It’s relatively inexpensive and easy to cook.
