Whole-Wheat Spaghetti Salad With Grilled Zucchini, Kalamata Olives, and Feta

Serious Eats Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

Sure, whole-wheat pasta is healthy. It's also tasty, offering a bit more "chew" than the refined-starch variety. That extra texture is a plus in this chilled salad, which mixes grilled zucchini, briny Kalamata olives, tomatoes, salty feta, and basil, all of the ingredients dressed in a simple vinaigrette. More

Spaghetti With Tomato Sauce and Pan-Fried Eggplant

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 3 comments

At its base, this is just a simple spaghetti and tomato sauce recipe—a satisfying classic for sure, but not exactly the most exciting dinner of the week. But if you add a handful of crispy slices of pan-fried eggplants on top, along with a shower of parmesan cheese, and you have a meal with a variety of textures and some real heft. More

Spaghetti Junction: The $4 Spaghetti That Tastes Almost as Good as the $24 Spaghetti From Roy Choi's 'L.A. Son'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 16 comments

Spaghetti in marinara sauce is not the first meal that comes to mind when I think of Roy Choi. Where does Italian food fit into his Korean-Mexican-American cuisine, and why is it featured in his new cookbook, L.A. Son? Marinara was one of the first dishes Choi mastered once he recovered from his gambling stint in the 1990s—and his sauce certainly has his own flair. More

Lemon-Avocado Spaghetti With Shrimp From 'Pasta Modern'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 5 comments

Francine Segan calls the avocado sauce in this dish from her new cookbook, Pasta Modern, a healthy alternative to dairy-based cream sauces, but it hardly tastes like bland diet food. The buttery fruit gets a quick buzz in a blender with plenty of lemon juice, turning velvety thick. It melts into the hot, white wine-scented pasta, adding a flavorful coating to the red onion, and shrimp. A dusting of lemon zest enlivens the dish, making the spaghetti impossible to put down. More

Spaghetti With Oranges, Dates, and Anchovies From 'Pasta Modern'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Dates are not the first thing I'd think to toss with spaghetti, but dried fruits like these feature prominently in Francine Segan's new cookbook, Pasta Modern. In this particular pasta, she pairs the ultra-sweet fruit with briny anchovies, savory tomato paste, and bright oranges. More

Flying Sea Urchin Pasta with Fish Roe and Chives from 'The Catch'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

I had my first bite of raw fish sushi in high school, but it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I finally persuaded myself to try uni. The delightfully pure saltiness of the roe was a surprise; its subtle, oceany richness captivated me, and I've been eating it at sushi joints ever since. Until this week, however, I had never brought some home to cook with myself. More

Social Circle Macaroni Pie from 'Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 3 comments

The name "macaroni pie" is confusing on multiple fronts. This recipe, from Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart's Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking is neither a pie nor made from macaroni. It also obscures the fact that the dish in question is actually just custard-style macaroni and cheese. But this old-school title is also a reminder of the history of the dish. More

Ina Garten's Turkey, Sausage, and Prosciutto Meatballs

Serious Eats Blake Royer Post a comment

It's tough to go wrong with spaghetti and meatballs, but I'm always up for a variation. This recipe from Ina Garten eschews the common beef for turkey instead. But while that's usually a terrible idea (because the way to go wrong with meatballs is to make them tough and dry), she keeps them interesting (and juicy) by adding in Italian sausage and finely chopped prosciutto. More
