Good Combos: Pasta + Pesto + Fish + Broccoli

Not really a recipe, but for dinner Friday night I tossed together fresh angel hair pasta, steamed broccoli, sauteed black cod and pesto, adding a little bit of salt and grated pecorino cheese for flavor. Really good!

I had leftover leeks and leftover cherry tomatoes hanging around, so improvised this as a side for Jon Pork Chops last night.

Charred Lemon Picatta

I gave this Cooking Light chicken picatta recipe a try. We thought it was pretty good, but I’m just linking versus reposting, as I don’t think it’s going to replace our standard picatta┬árecipe.

Corned Beef Sandwiches

I made Pioneer Woman’s corned beef and cabbage (pictured) a few days after Saint Patrick’s Day this year (we went out for non-Irish food on the actual holiday).

John’s Green Beans with Sesame Sauce

But he used this recipe for the green beans, which were a big hit.
