Three-Cheese Chicken Penne Florentine
Fresh spinach, chicken, and a combination of cheeses make this pasta dish comforting enough for the last days of winter yet fresh enough for the first days of spring. Serve family style or portion out in individual ramekins. Either way, this penne pasta casserole is definitely worth sharing.
Niçoise Egg Salad
Green beans, tuna and olives make this Niçoise-style egg salad recipe substantial. Serve it over salad greens.

Veal and Mushroom Ragout
Veal and mushrooms just seem to belong together. The mix of cremini, oyster and white buttons complements the meat. In this stew, I add Marsala, which is often paired with veal. It deepens the flavor of the broth without overwhelming the other ingredients.
Lemon Couscous With Asparagus and Tomato
This side dish is great for an easy warm-weather meal. Just add grilled meat or fish. To keep things simple, buy medium-thick asparagus whose spears are all about the same size. This is best served right after it is made; otherwise, the lemon juice will discolor the asparagus.
Black Bean, Grilled Pineapple, Shrimp and Poblano Salad
Bean salads are perfect for summer. They can be served cold or at room temperature, and most can be prepared in advance. With the right combination of summer fruits, herbs and other vegetables, it's easy to create a substantial main course.
