Panzanella for Two (non-traditional)

Serves 2 Tip: I almost always have homemade basic vinaigrette on hand in the refrigerator. I did when I made this hearty salad, but wanted the red wine vinegar kicked up just a little.

Spinach-Asparagus Quiche

6-8 servings Tip: If you're not into making pie crust, keep things simple and purchase one. Another option is to make the quiche without crust. It would be equally delicious.

Orecchiette w/Butternut Squash & Sage

3-4 servings Tip: I do eat meat, but continue to look for meatless options and find them very satisfying when they include hearty, textured vegetables and beans.
