‘ Nut-free Parsley Pesto and Lamb Chops
This pesto made with parsley and sharp Pecorino Romano cheese makes a colorful topping for tender lamb chops. It could also be tossed with pasta, spread on sandwiches, or mixed with cream cheese for a dip to serve with crudités.

‘ Farfalle with Arugula and White Beans
Quickly wilted arugula, canned beans, and toasted walnuts add heft to this vegetarian main course. Try spinach in place of arugula and pine nuts instead of walnuts.

‘ Orange, Roasted Beet, and Arugula Salad
The beet can be roasted up to a day in advance of serving the salad. Although the red beet contrasts nicely with the orange wedges, a golden or chioggia beet can be used instead.
