This is really the “magic sauce” because it can be adapted for many different dishes – all of them delicious. The basic tomato sauce is a classic that can be served with pasta like spaghetti or linguini to become spaghetti marinara. Or, just add a few ingredients like chopped imported olives and capers, and, presto, you’ll have a spicy topping for firm fish like tuna, halibut or swordfish. Add a few extra flakes of crushed red pepper, a squeeze of anchovy paste and a pinch of oregano and you’ll be the creator of spaghetti alla puttanesca, a notorious dish enjoyed in southern Italy. We make lots of this versatile tomato sauce to store in the fridge because it gives us several dinner options for the rest of the week.

Mashed potatoes are a staple of the holiday table for good reason. The addition of garlic adds a little more flavor, and if you want to up the ante, you can toss in a few peeled yellow onions along with the potatoes and garlic. Count on one Idaho size potato per person.

This healthy side dish is a lot easier than pie because you can stick it in the oven and forget about it for 25-30 minutes while you create the main event. We like to add a little grated parmesan near the end to add a little extra zip.

We like to imagine the Founding Fathers served a dish like this when Thanksgiving rolled around. Root vegetables have been a staple for generations, and roasting with good extra virgin olive oil brings out their sweetness and flavor, not to mention all those vitamins and fiber. You can make any substitutions you wish.

Fresh corn’s abundant in later summer, and it’s a perfect time to spice up corn on the cob. We like to grill corn for a change of pace, but you can also add the same spice to boiled, buttered corn if your grill is under repair.

This is a perfect side dish or salad for late summer when real tomatoes are available in the garden or at farmer’s markets around the country. Fresh mozzarella is best; if you see any buffalo mozzarella, grab it because it’s light as a cloud and tastes like heaven.
