Make Mongolian Beef Pasta for an Easy Meal

Mongolian Beef Pasta recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

While Mongolian beef may not be an authentic Chinese dish (or even a Mongolian dish), its popularity in Chinese-American restaurants is undeniable, and it was one of my favorite dishes from the Chinese take-out place in the rural town where I grew up. Although it’s sometimes served on a bed of fried glass noodles, Mongolian beef is hardly a meal on its own, and this got me wondering … what if I made a saucy Mongolian beef and tossed it with spaghetti?

Prepare Peach Toasts for a Simple Summer Appetizer

Peach Toasts recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

A few years ago, my boyfriend mixed feta cheese with a bit of milk in a food processor and the texture that it made was incredible. It was pourable, fluffy and tasted like heaven. I extended that very, very simple idea and applied it to goat cheese. The added cream cheese gives a bit more tartness to it, and the heavy cream really makes it fluffy and silky. This is the most basic of basic ideas, and really it isn’t that much of a recipe at all.

When Kimchi Met Comté: Kimchi Grilled Cheese

Kimchi Grilled Cheese recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I know, cheese and kimchi sound a world apart, but if an app existed to match up ingredients, kimchi would surely swipe right on comté. Despite their geographic separation, both are products of lacto-fermentation and share an intense umami with a mature flavor profile thanks to their age. But just because they share a lot in common doesn’t mean they’re a boring old pairing either. With plenty of complimentary characteristics that interplay as if pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the two together have a synergistic relationship.

Toss Pasta in Asparagus Pesto

Asparagus Pesto recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Pesto is my favorite thing in the entire world. I can eat varying iterations depending on the season and I do. In fall, I make kale pesto; in winter, I love beet-green pesto; and during spring it’s all about asparagus pesto. It may seem a bit strange to pulse up a beautiful vegetable like asparagus and coat it with pasta but I promise you it’s delicious. I like to include a bit of spinach to balance out the asparagus—it adds a nice freshness to it. In this pesto, you’ll see many of the usual suspects: Parmesan, olive oil, garlic and salt and lemon. For this recipe in particular, I favor pistachios (green on green!) but feel free to swap it in with pine nuts or almonds.
