Perfect with Pappardelle

Pappardelle is a broad, flat pasta, commonly compared to wide fettuccine. The name stems from the Italian verb pappare–to gobble up–and that’s exactly what you’ll want to do as it pairs perfectly with a variety of sauces and meats.

First up is Pappardelle with Salmon and Leeks, as elegant as it is easy. Rosy salmon and pale green leeks are tossed with broad ribbons of pappardelle pasta and fresh herbs. If you can't find pappardelle, cut fresh lasagna sheets into wide strips.

In one of our favorite mushroom and pasta dishes, truffle oil is used to impart rich, earthy flavor and complement the savory porcini mushrooms. Leftover oil also serves as a great dressing for a small side salad to accompany the meal.

An admittedly pricey ingredient, lobster fancies up any dinner and is worth the splurge. Opt for lobster tails--versus whole live lobsters--to bring the cost down.

Sustainable choice: Look for tails from American lobsters trapped off the New England or eastern Canadian shores.
