Roasted Red Pepper and Prosciutto Lasagna
Posted on December 14th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Wonton skins, which can be found in the frozen food section of your supermarket, cook up beautifully, just like fresh Italian pasta, and I see no reason not to stock them in your freezer at home and thaw them out whenever you want to make “homemade” ravioli or lasagna. Your family will think you are a culinary genius. Makes 4 servings Hands-on time: 20 minutes Total preparation time: 55 minutes 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly… more »


This week on the show, we feature Meatless Mondays with Amanda Cohen.
Posted on November 17th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Recipes « Uncategorized  |  Submit Comment
There are so many exciting vegetable choices at the supermarket these days why not designate one day a week as a no meat meal. In Episode 507: Meatless Mondays, Amanda Cohen, chef of the much talked about NY restaurant ‘Dirt Candy’ introduces me to a fantastic new tool, called a spiralizer which Amanda uses to cut up zucchini for her Zucchini Pasta with Garlicky Yogurt Sauce. Then she prepares her spiked Kentucky Lemonade which is actually made in the oven!… more »


Tomato Gratin
Posted on September 23rd, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
This dish tastes best when the tomato season is at its height. As with almost any recipe featuring tomatoes, I pre-salt them to remove their excess liquid and concentrate their flavor. You can top them off with any kind of cracker—even plain old bread crumbs would be fine—but I like using Ritz crackers because their buttery taste reminds me of my grandmother Ruth Moulton. This is the kind of dish she would have served. Makes 6 to 8 servings Hands-on… more »


Sautéed Falafel
Posted on September 9th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Falafel are a favorite of connoisseurs of street food from Jerusalem to New York City.  Made with ground dried chickpeas or fava beans, they’re hot, peppery, meaty, inexpensive, and satisfying – a handy little meal in a pita pocket.  Given that we’re starting with canned beans instead of dried beans and that we sauté the falafel rather than deep-fry it, this version is both quicker to make and less caloric than the standard recipe…but no less lovable. Makes 4 servings… more »


Grilled Shiitake, Sweet Potato, and Eggplant Kebobs
Posted on September 2nd, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Shiitake mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and eggplant are all very “meaty” vegetables. Similarly there’s a creaminess to Sesame Miso Sauce, although it contains no cream. Put them together and you’ve got a very filling dish. Tasty too, of course. Grilling these vegetables as kabobs brings out their natural sugars. (You can broil them if you don’t have a grill or grill pan.) Makes 4 servings Hands-on time: 10 minutes Total preparation time: 50 minutes including marinating time 1/2 cup soy sauce… more »


Asian Green Beans and Pork
Posted on August 26th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
I have always loved the original version of this Chinese dish when I was served it. The only trouble is that the green beans are usually wok-fried in lots of oil. I wanted to lighten it up a bit so I figured out a way to crisp the beans without the fat–by broiling them. Makes 4 servings Hands-on time: 25 minutes Total preparation time: 25 minutes 1 pound lean ground pork, beef, or turkey 6 tablespoons soy sauce 1/4 cup… more »


Barbecued Kielbasa
Posted on August 19th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
In my research for Sara’s Secrets for Weeknight Meals… I found a recipe for my grandmother Ruth’s “Barbecued Frankforts” on a three- by five-inch index card in an old metal box, handwritten in her own beautiful curly script. Granny was a superb ye olde New England cook, so I gave it a try.  In the end I substituted kielbasa for hotdogs and used my own barbecue sauce recipe (although you’re welcome to use your favorite supermarket brand).  But what I more »


Asparagus and Goat Cheese Souffléed Omelet
Posted on August 12th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
This is a cross between an omelet and a soufflé and doesn’t take too much work as long as you have electric beaters. Make sure you beat your egg whites just to soft peaks; otherwise they won’t fold properly into the egg yolk base. Any leftover cheese or vegetable such as broccoli, spinach or the like would make a fine filling for this souffléed omelet so consider this a clean-out-the-fridge dish. Makes 2 servings Hands-on time: 15 minutes Total preparation… more »


Scampi Heros
Posted on August 6th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Nobody ever really gets enough shrimp. Which is why the idea of a scampi hero seemed luxurious to me. (In Italy, scampi is the name for the tail portion of any of several kinds of small lobsterlike creatures. In America scampi is the name for a dish of large shrimp cooked in butter or oil with garlic.) It’ll cut your prep time way down if your local supermarket sells raw shrimp already shelled and deveined—but make sure they smell very… more »


Greek Salad Sandwiches with Feta Dressing
Posted on July 29th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
This is a slight twist on a Greek salad. I just put all the elements into a pita pocket and used the feta to make a dressing. If you like Greek salads, you will love this more-substantial sandwich. Makes 4 Servings Hands-on time: 20 minutes Total preparation time: 20 minutes 4 ounces good-quality feta cheese, crumbled (about 2/3 cup) 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves or… more »


Antipasto Salad with Parmigiano-Reggiano Dressing
Posted on July 22nd, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
This is the perfect lazy-day summer salad, since you don’t have to use the oven. You could buy the blanched broccoli or cauliflower and prepared pasta salad at the salad bar and never even turn on the stovetop. But this salad would be equally good on any night, summer or winter, when you are pressed for time. Feel free to substitute other meats or cheeses for the ones suggested below. Makes 6 to 8 Servings Hands-on-time: 25 minutes Total preparation… more »


Grilled Lamb and Onion Kabobs with Olive Aioli
Posted on July 15th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Lemon, olive oil, rosemary, and garlic – this is my favorite marinade for lamb, whether I am cooking a roast or skewering kabobs. They work well together because both the marinade and the lamb are products of the Mediterranean. The sauce, made of garlic and olive-flavored mayonnaise, is also Mediterranean – and a great shortcut, given that mayo is premade. I love grilled onions with the lamb, but you can add other vegetables to the skewers. Makes 4 servings Hands-on… more »


Grilled Eggplant Wraps with Lemon Aioli, Feta, and Mint
Posted on July 14th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes  |  Submit Comment
Many of my favorite flavors from Greece are contained in this one fragrant little wrap. You can make them all summer long using an outdoor grill, but you can also cook them indoors year round using a grill pan or a broiler. Stick a skewer sideways through the onions to keep them together when you cook them. If feta cheese is too salty for you, substitute ricotta salata, this aged ricotta cheese is similar in flavor to feta but not… more »


Grilled Potato and Corn Salad with Chipotle Mayonnaise
Posted on July 6th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes « Side Dishes  |  Submit Comment
The corn in this salad should be grilled, but what’s the best way to do it? In the husk? With some of the husk removed? Stripped naked? My wholehearted vote is for the “naked” or fully husked, method, which creates an unbeatable toasted popcorn flavor. The secret ingredients here are the chipotles and adobo. Chipotles are smoked jalapenos and adobo is a tomato-based sauce. A little bit of these guys will perk up any dish. This salad tastes best when… more »


Sautéed Pork Loin with Mustard and Grapes
Posted on June 25th, 2015 by Sara Moulton  |  Filed under Entrees « Featured Recipe « Recipes « Uncategorized  |  Submit Comment
When I was in High School my Mom and I threw all kinds of dinner parties. (Actually she threw the parties and I helped cook.) Our favorite dish was Veal Scaloppine. I liked it no matter how it was cooked or sauced. It seemed so elegant to us, and there were so manygood recipes for it in our favorite cookbook, Craig Claiborne’s The New York Times Cookbook…. In retrospect, I realize that my fondness for veal scaloppini is based more »
