Dinner Doctor Nina Simonds shows you how to gather the ingredients for a quick and healty spicy penne dinner with baby spinaxh and tomatoes. My family loves all types of noodles, Asian and Italian, so I‘m always looking for new ideas. The fresh, baby spinach tossed into the hot pasta at the last minute makes this dish special and is a great way to get my son to eat more vegetables. The sauce is particularly good during tomato season, but I use canned tomatoes when necessary. Also, feel free to substitute other greens like arugula, watercress, and baby greens.

Dinner Doctor Nina Simonds shows you how to gather the ingredients for a quick and healty pesto chicken dinner with vegetables and couscous. Dinner Doctor is one of my alternative identities. In some cases, it’s a bit like Dr. Phil meets Nina. Here the challenge was to walk into any good supermarket, spend 5 minutes or so and come out with an appealing, easy, healthy meal. You can’t believe how easy it is and it’s FUN!!! Let’s face it, like everyone else, making dinner every night is a DRAG!!! (even for a cook) This was my effort to help people with ideas.

They are excellent hot or cold and if seared properly over high heat will keep their vibrant green color. 1 _ pounds broccolini, broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, string beans, etc. 1 teaspoon virgin olive oil 2 _ tablespoons rice wine, sake, or very good quality dry sherry 1 _ tablespoons minced garlic 1 teaspoon sea salt 1.Trim away any tough leafy ends and peel away any tough skin from the stalk. Cut the stalk on the diagonal into 1 _-inch lengths. Separate any flowerets. Rinse the vegetable thoroughly and drain 2.Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in a large pot and add the stalky, tougher part of the vegetable. Cook about 2 minutes or until near tender. Add the leafy sections or flowerets and cook for another minute. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold, running water. Drain.
