recipe

This dish is similar to paella, but much quicker to prepare and made with a broken spaghetti noodle called fideos. Dried chorizo cooks in oil to release a rich paprika essence, then fideos are toasted in the same pan before softening in a cherry tomato sauce. While cured sausage and sharp Manchego offer rich, complex flavor, salt the water as you would a pot of pasta -- it should taste like the sea.

recipe

A perfect make-ahead lunch, these noodles -- made with a sweet-and-spicy sauce of peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, and crushed red-pepper flakes -- can be prepared and refrigerated for up to week. It takes just minutes to cook udon noodles and coarsely chop baby bok choy to toss with the sauce.

recipe

Avgolemono gets its smooth and thick consistency not from cream but from eggs; they're tempered by hot chicken broth and whisked into the soup just before serving. Shredded boneless, skinless chicken breast makes this soup a filling one that is nevertheless low in calories and fat.
