Rotelle with Bacon, Watercress, and Cherry Tomatoes
Here watercress and cherry tomatoes cook for only a matter of minutes, just long enough to soften them slightly. The watercress adds a nice bite, but if you don’t like that effect, try strips of romaine or another mild green.

1/2 pound sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 bunch watercress, (about 5 ounces) tough stems removed
3/4 pound rotelle
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 scallions, including green top, cut into thin slices
Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving




In a large frying pan, cook the bacon until golden brown and just crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the fat.

Add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the tomatoes soften slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the watercress and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 1 minute.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the rotelle until just done, about 12 minutes. Reserve 3/4 cup of the pasta water. Drain the pasta and toss with the bacon, 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water, the tomato mixture, the butter, and the olive oil. If the pasta seems dry, add more of the reserved pasta water. Top with the sliced scallions. Serve with grated Parmesan.


Wine Recommendation: A straightforward white wine will be best. Either a pinot blanc from Alsace in France or a California chenin blanc will have enough body to stand up to the acidity of the tomatoes and the saltiness of the bacon in this dish.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
