Weeknight Kitchen: Spanish Garlic Soup

With winter hanging on by its nails for much of the country, a steaming bowl of soup is still welcome at the end of these early spring days. 

This recipe, from Terry Golson's The Farmstead Egg Guide & Cookbook, is a soup finished in the oven like a classic French onion. However, rather than topping with cheese, a single egg is poached in the garlicky broth.

Weeknight Kitchen: Spaghetti Squash with Bacon, Pine Nuts, and Balsamic Vinegar

This week, we have a fresh take on weeknight pasta from Susanna Hoffman and Victoria Wise's book, BOLD: A Cookbook of Big Flavors. Instead of spaghetti, tangles of spaghetti squash are tossed with nubs of crispy bacon and crunchy pine nuts, then drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. It's more of a warm salad than a bowl of pasta, but it's delicious paired with a tender green salad on the side. Eat both and double your vegetable quota in one sitting.
