  • Red Sauce Recipe - Pan Seared Polenta & Roasted Asparagus

    Red Sauce Recipe - Pan-Seared Polenta & Roasted Asparagus Before working on this recipe I couldn't describe polenta without using the words "yellow" and "mush".  Now all I want to know is "when can I have polenta again?"    Please please please: do not buy instant polenta!  What little time you'll save will be dearly repaid with a plate of mushy sadness.  Find the section of Zabar's (after you find the Red Sauce) where they keep Bob's Red Mill, find polenta (aka corn grits) and follow the instructions.  You will be rewarded with a bounty of creamy, nutty, flavorful staple-food goodness.   Post your creations to...

Roasted Eggplant Red Sauce. Leafy?  Vaguely Southern?  None of us can remember the last time we had collard greens that weren't a greasy, bacon-y mess (not that that's always a bad thing.)  Here we let the subtle bitterness of this almost-Super food complement the creamy texture and savory goodness of beef and ricotta meatballs. Greens:   2 anchovy fillets in oil 2 celery ribs, chopped...

  • Red Sauce Recipe - Cauliflower Steaks w/ Red Sauce Romesco

    This Weekend's Recipe - Inspired by Belly (and yours will thank you) These absolutely gigantic cauliflower from the Union Square farmers market reminded us of a preparation for cauliflower steaks - a center round cut from the whole head - we first encountered at an amazing wine bar and charcuterie from our Cambridge, MA days called Belly.   They took the most underrated vegetable out there, roasted it and topped with a romesco sauce and shaved parmigiano reggiano.  Here we brighten things up a bit with the addition pimiento peppers and Roasted Eggplant Red Sauce.   An optional, but no less delicious route, is to add...

  • Red Sauce Recipes - Chicken Cacciatore

    So, now that just about everyone has Red Sauce... Let's cook something! So yesterday's Two Times Tuesday deal was pretty popular.  And by pretty popular I mean my UPS guy now walks with a limp.  Many of you will have some Porcini Mushroom Red Sauce coming your way soon, so it might be a good time to figure out just what to do with all that earthy, aromatic goodness.  Personally, I like to match Porcinis with chicken - you can certainly put the sauce over pasta like you always do, but let's try something different!  Cacciatora means hunter's style, but all you have to hunt for...
