Recipe: One-Pot Pasta Puttanesca — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners

Spaghetti alla puttanesca is one of the humblest pastas out there. There's no meat or long simmering time to contend with. Instead, the tomato-based sauce gets big punches of flavor from a trio of salty, briny powerhouses: olives, anchovies, and capers. The resulting tangle of saucy noodles is deeply satisfying. As if this dish needed anything else to make it more appealing, almost all of the ingredients can be found in the pantry or condiment section of your refrigerator.

Recipe: Vietnamese-Style Shrimp Po’ Boy — Recipes from the Road

Imagine, if you will, fresh Gulf shrimp, juicy and aromatic with coriander and lime, combined with all the pickled goodness of a bánh mì sandwich, slathered with a spicy-sweet mayonnaise and enveloped in a po' boy bun. This is the Vietnamese-inspired po' boy that we fell in love with in New Orleans' French Quarter and the one we're sharing here today.

Without the fried trappings of a traditional shrimp po' boy, this take is lighter, more piquant, and much easier to recreate at home than its namesake.
