Easy tomato sauce
My father had a rotation of a few go-to dishes he would make for me and my sister when my mother was working or studying, and one of them is an easy, but still super-tasty favorite of mine: ricotta, pasta, and tomato sauce. Usually he went with rotelli. He’d make the pasta, throw it in a bowl with the ricotta while it was still warm a few times, and then toss it with tomato sauce. It’s creamy and tangy, and it’s replete with all the true simple goodness and flavor of growing up in an Italian-American household. I play with this recipe all the time, throwing in cold goat cheese at the last second, fancying up the pasta, making my own sauce, but at the base of it, this is Pop’s dish. Here, instead of using a jar of sauce, you can make a simple homemade cherry tomato sauce in less than 20 minutes, and used some fancypants stracciatella and ricotta with homemade garganelli from Eataly. It’s a much more expensive version of a dish whose inspiration was kind of totally the complete opposite: a reasonably priced, soul-satisfying, red-sauce dinner. Why? Because it takes all those quintessential flavors to their next level. Regardless, let’s just say by the time you boil your water, it will be ready to go. And hey Pop, thanks for dinner.

Eggplant Bolognese with Wine
The secret to the rich flavor and beautiful, deep-red color of this sauce is lots of red wine. This sauce uses almost an entire bottle of wine and a long cooking time to meld the flavors together. Serve tossed with al dente spaghetti or pappardelle and fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

South Dakota: Pheasant Noodle Soup
As the best place in the country to hunt wild pheasant, we imagine that this gamey bird has ended up in a pot or two of soup, which is why we chose this pheasant soup for South Dakota. Don’t have pheasant? This soup still tastes great made with chicken or any other fowl you choose.

lentil stew
While I was researching Mexican cuisine I came across a traditional dish called Sopa de Lentejas, which is basically a lentil soup/stew with Mexican seasoning. I noticed that in some recipes chorizo was used. I decided to make my own simplified version of this traditional stew using chorizo and Supremo's Crema Supremo sour cream to top the dish. This sour cream has a distinctive tang to it that just says Mexican food! — Diane Balch, Simple Living and EatingFor more recipes like this one visit Simple Living and Eating.
