From Bolognese to carbonara, a rich variety of pasta sauces keeps adventurous cooks busy and their friends delighted. The Italians may start a meal with a pasta course, but the Food Guys say it may be hard to resist filling up before the meat course. They do recommend selecting a sauce to match the pasta shape. For example, light sauces evenly coat long, thin noodles whereas thick, creamy sauces are best with wide noodles or tube pasta that can catch the sauce.

Tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans) provide significant health benefits. In addition to good fats, they contain high quantities of vitamins, minerals and fiber. The Food Guys recommend eating a quarter cup of tree nuts each day, but they also recognize that prices can fluctuate depending on the environmental conditions and global market.

He looked through all of his cook books, and when he couldn't find any, Patent decided to invent one. From Greg and Dorothy Patent's 1999 book, "A Is for Apple," here's how to make apple babka.
