Pasta with roasted red pepper sauce, kale, and chickpeas

I’ve been making this little sauce and pouring it on everything I can think of: grains, legumes, salads. It’s all good.

Pasta with roasted tomatoes, corn and garlic confit

This dish was a straight-up treat. The garlic confit and corn take on a subtle sweetness, while the roasted tomatoes take everything to a deeper level. I would have even skipped the pasta and poured everything over a good piece of bread. So save this recipe as a bruschetta idea as well!

Heirloom tomato spaghetti with fresh basil

Please forgive me for sharing what may be the simplest, most generic summer meal. I can’t get enough of heirloom tomatoes!

  • 4 medium heirloom tomatoes, the more colorful, the better
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 shallots
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves
  • 1 8-ounce package spaghetti

Chop the tomatoes and place them in a large bowl, along with their juices. Drizzle the olive oil over top, and season well with salt and pepper. Let the tomatoes rest.

Mince the shallots and garlic. In a small saucepan, heat a couple splashes of olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Next, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, and add to the bowl with the tomatoes. Tear the basil leaves, and add them to the bowl. Stir to combine, and let rest while preparing the pasta.

Cook the pasta according to package directions, and drain. Add the pasta to the bowl with the tomatoes, and toss well to coat with the sauce. Divide among 4 bowls, and serve warm.

Makes 4 servings.

Greens with pasta, artichokes, salame and beans

I grabbed a beautiful bag of greens (grown in the city!) at a farmer’s market recently and wanted to highlight it beyond just throwing them in a bowl. The salame can be optional here, I honestly just had a craving! It could certainly be made meatless and have the same impact.

Spring ricotta gnocchi

There are lots of Providence restaurants on my to-try list, and Cook & Brown Public House, suggested by a co-worker, is one of them. Chef Nemo Bolin, who hails from the Providence restaurant, created this dish. I’ve modified it slightly, based mainly on the fact that I didn’t have immediate access to morels.

Pea and fava bean pasta with ricotta and mint

The ricotta and Parmesan mixture was really spectacular, and it was light enough to keep this dish’s fresh spring appeal. I know it’s almost June, but I’m still riding happily along with spring flavors and produce.

Lemon-ricotta campenelle with toasted walnuts

This pasta is a great make-ahead meal for work lunches. I packed it as a lunch for a week straight: Each day I’d bring one large container of pasta and one small container of extra olive oil for drizzling. I mixed the walnuts in with the large original batch, so they softened over time, but I didn’t really mind it because they maintained lots of toasted flavor. If you prefer your walnuts to have some crunch, pack them separately.
