Foolproof Roasted Vegetables
While sautéed or steamed veggies are fine, roasting elevates them to being seriously delicious (it also happens to be one of the easiest ways to cook them). A superhot oven has the power to intensify and caramelize anything from eggplant to zucchini.
Great pairing: Fettuccine Alfredo, which, while delicious, is lacking in the vitamins and fiber departments.
