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.
The crunchy and cheesy bites that ooze out of the sides of this “rolled” chicken are irresistible. Most kids go crazy for this, but it has sophisticated flavors adults will enjoy, too.
In a tangy twist on a classic chicken recipe, a whole (organic free-range) chicken is rubbed inside and out with aromatic herbs, then baked with freshly squeezed lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil for a light and flavorful Italian dish. Paired with roasted potatoes, this dish makes for a perfect meal.
This quick and easy Italian recipe is loaded not only with nutrients, but also with the robust flavor of fresh basil, pungent garlic, and extra-virgin olive oil.
