Chef John's Italian Meatballs
I got tired of buying meatballs for my wife from the local Italian restaurant's farmers' market booth, so I decided to try these. Can't disagree with any of the rave reviews. This recipe seems to have engendered fewer modifications (other than the meat mix) than most on this site, so I figured it must be great as written. It is. I combined half the meatballs with my own homemade tomato sauce (from my sister's garden), and the other half will get frozen plain. I expect to be back to this recipe for another batch before the winter is over!

Chef John's Pasta Primavera
I give it a 4 only because I make a few alterations, so cannot comment on the original recipe. Changes: I use my homemade pesto instead of the garlic-olive oil-basil ingredients; the pesto provides essentially the same flavors plus a bit of thickening from the pine nuts or walnuts. Other main change: I would first boil the pasta (I recommend Bionaturae whole wheat spaghetti, and don't dismiss the idea until you try it. Available, at about 3 bucks a pound, from Amazon), then stir fry everything in a big wok, adding the veggies in the order of leeks, onions, and peppers first, then the other stuff. But that's just me.

Artichoke and Tomato Chicken
Just had this. Excellent dish. The flavor that predominates is the fresh basil, now growing with a vengeance in my garden (Florida, so I'll have it all year). I made pretty much the recipe amounts, but wound up with extra filling. That'll go great with pasta. Thanks, Maggie!
