Pappardelle
When possible, I like to use fresh pasta, which cooks very quickly and is less dense than dried pasta. Fresh pasta is available in most local markets. If you aren’t able to find fresh pappardelle, use Pasta Setaro, a very high-quality dried pasta. Adapted from "Fresh from the Market" by Laurent Tourondel and Charlotte March.

Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Bolognese Sauce
Here's a complete, well-balanced meal all on one plate: protein, carbs, greens, and fiber all packed into one dish. This recipe is also great with lean ground turkey instead of beef. Not a broccoli rabe fan? Use regular broccoli instead.

Bolognese
This is the classic ragù of Bologna, the city where I was born and raised. It is also the ragù that coated the homemade tagliatelle my mother would make on Sundays. This ragù, however, is also terrific over rigatoni, penne, and spaghetti.

Eggplant Bolognese
The flavor of this hearty sauce is as equally tasty over cooked whole grains or spaghetti squash as it is over pasta. The sauce freezes well for quick weeknight meals. Click here to see In Season: 6 Easy Eggplant Recipes.

Bolognese Sauce
This recipe is a truly classic Italian dish, and like any traditional should be, this one was passed down to me by my father. The key to this meat sauce is to follow the process and build layers of flavor as you go. Start with the aromatics, then add the seasonings, then the meat, then the tomatoes, and so on. There are two slightly unusual ingredients in this bolognese — the first is a touch of concentrated beef base (which really kicks the rich, meaty flavor of the sauce up a few notches), and the second is milk (swirling in a splash at the end rounds out the flavor and adds a luxurious feel to the dish). Finish each serving with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and serve alongside a hunk of crusty bread to mop up the sauce.

Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Bolognese Sauce
There are few dishes more comforting on a chilly evening than a big bowl of pasta with a hearty meat sauce and a glass of red. Broccoli rabe and whole-wheat pasta ensure that you’re getting your greens and fiber, too.
