"Dinner Tonight" Column


Wheat Berry Salad with Harissa and Pistachios
If you've been clamoring to try wheat berries--which cook up a bit like cous cous--try this summery little salad with currants, pistachios, and some spicy harissa.

Pasta with Garlic Scape and Basil Pesto
Garlic scapes shoot up out of garlic plants for a short season, and are often pureed into pesto; using a little basil rounds out the flavors to make a perfect simple dinner.

Curried-Pork Noodles
Starting with a base of ground pork tossed in a hot wok, aromatic curry powder and fish sauce add to create the funky base for thin noodles.

Orecchiette with Sausage, Broccoli, and Caramelized Garlic
A variation on the popular Italian pasta sausage with broccoli rabe, this version adds sundried tomatoes and lemon juice to balance the richness of the sausage.

Warm Mushroom Salad with Hazelnuts and Pecorino
Meaty with no meat: shallots, mushrooms, and pecorino all add meaty undertones to this simple salad, though no meat is actually involved at all.
