This potato gratin is a classic comfort food. The thinly-sliced, shingled potatoes are meltingly tender, and while there’s certainly plenty of rich and creamy cheese sauce, it’s not so much that it drowns the potatoes. Uncovering the casserole for the final 30 minutes of baking yields a crunchy, cheesy, salty top layer that’s incredibly addictive. Using two types of cheese is also key to this dish: the sharp Cheddar cheese compliments the saltiness of the Parmesan. Serve this casserole as a holiday side dish, or enjoy some with dinner tonight, and eat leftovers for breakfast, topped with a fried egg.
This lemony pasta with feta cheese is guaranteed to brighten up dinnertime.
If your go-to pasta order is fettuccini alfredo, you’ll quickly fall in love with this creamy, cheesy chicken spaghetti casserole. The nutty, salty Asiago cheese makes for a rich and decadent sauce, but a squeeze of lemon juice and a handful of fresh herbs keep the flavors balanced. Because it finishes under the broiler, the dish is easy enough for even the busiest of weeknights. Serve with garlic bread or a simple side salad, and a glass of crisp white wine for the adults. If you want to try a different protein, opt for cooked shrimp or crab instead of rotisserie chicken.
Cooking jasmine rice is one of those seemingly simple tasks that is actually pretty difficult to master, even for some professional cooks. But once you master the technique, you’ll be steaming to perfection in no time. One of the big problems people encounter is rice stuck to the bottom of the pot. This is actually a sign that you’ve nailed the jasmine rice-to-water ratio. To release it, all you have to do is remove the pot from the stove, and let it rest, covered, for 5 minutes. The starchy grains will magically release from the bottom for a perfectly cooked batch of jasmine rice.
