Thin chicken cutlets are easy to coat in the hazelnut breading, plus they cook in a flash for time-strapped weeknights.

We've elevated the humble pasta bake to Sunday supper-worthy fare by using lamb instead of beef and swapping out the mozzarella often found on casseroles for Fontina, a mild, buttery, semi-soft cheese with a slight nuttiness. Substitute ground lamb for lean sausage or ground beef depending on your current taste bud needs.
Cherry Bomb peppers may look cute but these little guys pack the heat! The round red peppers – also known as Hungarian cherry peppers – are about as spicy as jalapeños and have a thick, crunchy flesh that stands up well to cooking. Keep the basil stems and toss them in your sauce for extra (and effortless!) flavor. The stems become very tender when cooked, so there's no need to remove them before serving.
Ground nori melts seamlessly into this elegant brown butter pan sauce, adding its signature earthy-salty flavor. The keys to browning butter without burning it are watching the pan carefully and swirling it often. The butter will melt and then start to foam, at which point you’ll notice the color change from yellow to golden brown. Take it off the heat as soon as it starts to smell nutty.
Blending cashews with lemon juice and hot water creates a luscious cream for this comforting plant-based mushroom stroganoff. Mushrooms are full of umami taste, which gives the sauce full-bodied flavor in a fraction of the time it takes to make the original beef version.

This intensely flavorful dish is a cross between two classic French meals: beef bourguignon and coq au vin. For best results, use a good-quality red wine – ideally, Burgundy. If you have butcher’s twine on hand, use it to tie the thyme sprigs together for easy removal once the stew is done.
Dressing (aka stuffing) has long served as a faithful sidekick to turkey. Here, the side steals the show in traditional meatballs, lending moist texture and tons of flavor.
A handful of pantry staples and a few fresh veggies are all you need to transform leftover turkey breast into this quick and satisfying take on the classic pasta dish. Feel free to substitute chicken for the turkey if that’s what you have on hand.

The fun part of pizza making is getting creative with toppings, using whatever we have in the house. We have been putting hummus on our pizza crust for quite some time. On top of the hummus, you can put any greens you have. Sometimes I use watercress or baby spinach for the kids because they are milder, though I love to use fresh spring baby arugula. The sautéed mushrooms add a great texture and pop of flavor.

Sprinkle with fresh herbs, such as oregano or basil, just before serving.
