Nutritious noodles and a few clever ingredients please the whole family.

Buckwheat Soba with Spinach

Serves 4 / A belly-warming treat in the Japanese tradition. Prep tips: Timing is important in this cooking process; it all happens in quick succession, so have ingredients set out and ready to go. This dish would also be happy topped with sautéed shrimp or fish. Go to recipe

Pasta with Sausage Bolognese

Serves 6 / A simple play on the traditional favorite but with more fiber, thanks to the whole-wheat pasta. I love Muir Glen organic fire-roasted tomatoes, but any brand will do. Go to recipe

Goat Cheese Presto

Serves 6-8 / Almost like fettuccine Alfredo but with fewer calories and less fuss. I use Tinkyada rice noodles. Go to recipe
