Still, the ingredients are few and simple and the dish makes a great accompaniment to many meat offerings. This recipe is a good candidate for a slow cooker. SHORTCUT: Use pre-shredded cabbage.

Use any combination, or just one type, of your favorite mushrooms for this earthy vegetarian entrée. Crumbled feta cheese makes a fine substitute for goat cheese.
There?s a whole world of minestrones out there ? most of which follow very strict, authentic recipes. Personally, I feel that a minestrone should always reflect the seasons: more cabbagy, frumpy ones in the winter and lighter, more colorful ones in the spring and summer. A minestrone can also be a whole meal if you want it to be, with pasta, stale bread or rice to bulk it out. To complement the spring vegetables, I?ve put a bit of a Genoese twist on it, with a spoonful of fresh pesto added at the last minute, so the flavors explode in your mouth. Give it a try.
Light cooking tip: Cook vegetables briefly, to keep them crisp, and combine many for a variety of flavors and textures. Use refrigerated egg substitute or all egg whites instead of whole eggs to cut saturated fat in scrambles. Notes: This colorful wrap from executive chef Guido Ulmann at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa in Honolulu makes a great brunch, lunch, or light supper entrée. He uses red or green tortillas, but any kind of the same size will do.

Carbonara is a classic pasta sauce made with cream, bacon and Parmesan and is absolutely delicious. Try to buy the best ingredients you can, as that?s what really helps to make this dish amazing. I?m using a flowering variety of thyme but normal thyme is fine to use. When it comes to the type of pasta, you can serve carbonara with spaghetti or linguine, but I?ve been told by Italian mammas (who I don?t argue with!) that penne is the original, so that?s what I?m using in this recipe. Before you start cooking, it?s important to get yourself a very large pan, or use a high-sided roasting tray so you can give the pasta a good toss.

We replaced the usual rice with pan-roasted sweet potatoes, onions, and poblano chiles, giving this burrito a healthy dose of fiber as well as heart-protecting micronutrients such as carotenoids (in the sweet potatoes), flavonoids (onions), folic acid (cabbage), and omega-3 fatty acids (salmon). Prep and Cook Time: about 45 minutes.
If you don't have a mortar and pestle to grind the garlic paste, you can always use a small heavy bowl and the back of a wooden spoon. A food processor works, too; be sure to scrape the sides down halfway through processing, and process again to achieve a smooth paste. If you can't find piquillo peppers, you can substitute roasted red peppers. Steam the asparagus and combine the ingredients for the dressing a day ahead; store them separately in the refrigerator.

Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar & Grill in Birmingham, Alabama, notices a marked difference between strip steaks cooked with the bone and those cooked without it: "There is this added flavor that the bone lends to the beef, and it keeps the meat around the bone especially tender," he says. Stitt pairs these steaks with smoky sweet potato hash browns: "Sweet potatoes have so much personality for such an inexpensive, humble ingredient."
We like these soufflés best with bittersweet chocolate, but they work wonderfully with any kind you prefer—even milk chocolate. Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes. Notes: You can fill the soufflé dishes up to 1 day before baking and chill them (allow up to 5 extra minutes to bake). Increase or decrease the number of soufflés with this simple formula: For each soufflé, use 1/2 tsp. butter, 1 tbsp. sugar, 1 oz. chocolate, 1 tbsp. milk, 1/2 egg yolk, 1 egg white, and a small pinch of both salt and cream of tartar.

For variation and added crunch, toast the pita wedges while you're preparing the chicken and bean mixture. For crispy wedges, split the pita rounds in half, coat the cut sides with butter-flavored cooking spray, and stack the split rounds.

Time: 1 hour. Hot dogs are mandatory at any ball game, and these mini versions are beyond cute. Pâte à choux (the same dough used for cream puffs) is quick and easy to make, but you'll need a little practice to pipe it neatly into hot dog bun shapes.
