Swordfish and Pasta with Five Herbs & Cherry Tomatoes

Rach says: "I sometimes top this pasta with my grandpa's anchovy breadcrumbs. To make them, melt anchovies in olive oil, add chopped garlic and breadcrumbs and stir until golden. Once cool, add chopped parsley, grated Parm, and pepper."

Seafood St. Jacques Rolls

"Want a side to go along with this springtime alternative to summertime lobster rolls? I dress a bag of store-bought coleslaw mix with white vinegar, olive oil or vegetable oil, salt, pepper, celery seed and a little superfine sugar for a refreshing salad." -Rachael

Fat Spaghetti with Garlic, Cherry Tomatoes & Basil

This Tuscan dish, called pici all'Aglione, is made at nearly every restaurant in the region. My mom has already requested it for Mother's Day dinner! If you can't find pici, use bucatini, a thick, hollow spaghetti that's lots of fun because it makes a slurping sound when you eat it.
