Rustic Italian Pasta Dinner
Pasta and Tomato Sauce with Vodka and Cream
We test the best method for making a quick, simple pasta sauce.
Bruschetta with Fresh Herbs
The original version is toasted (not baked) and flavored with olive oil and raw garlic. Serve these crisp slices as is or with a variety of toppings.
Fennel-Orange Salad with Black Olives and Mint
To discover fennel's virtues, slice it thin and cook it slowly.
Penne alla Vodka
Splashes of vodka and cream can turn run-of-the-mill tomato sauce into luxurious restaurant fare—or a heavy, boozy mistake. We set out to fine-tune this modern classic.
