Fregola is an Italian rolled pasta similar to Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully toothsome in this salad. If you can't find fregola (or wanted to go gluten free), millet would be a great substitute. Top with a few chunks of good quality tuna packed in olive oil and you've got a nice, hearty, nourishing meal.
Baked pasta is a weeknight-friendly way to incorporate super-nutritious ancient whole grains into your meals.
Right about now, I get to craving the aromatic bliss of basil. But it's tough to find in winter, and tends to be somewhat bland--and expensive--if you do. My seasonal secret? I use arugula, which is abundant right now both in my garden and on market shelves.
