Spaghetti is the pasta backbone of this light salad featuring lots of sweet grape tomatoes, black olives, and sliced fresh mushrooms in a dressing with a Mediterranean vibe. It's perfect for a summer day.
This delicious chicken salad is bursting with different flavors and textures: tender chicken teams up with crunchy celery, nutty pecans, pungent cilantro, tangy pineapple, spicy green onion and sweet red apples for an unforgettable treat.
Best if cooking is started the day before serving. Boston butt is the easiest to make on a small scale. Use a shoulder or a whole shoulder (which is a shoulder plus the Boston butt) for larger crowds. The sauce skimmed off the top is very, very hot and can also be used to make terribly hot chicken wings.
Lasagna noodles are baked with an earthy blend of beef, refried beans, oregano, cumin and garlic, with salsa spooned over. Topped with sour cream, green onions, olives and Pepper Jack cheese, the casserole gets one more brief baking to melt the cheese.
