Thai Pesto with Rice Noodles & Shrimp

This spicy pesto is made with Thai basil, which has a licorice-like flavor. Look for it at the farmers' market: If you can't find it, it's fine to use regular basil.

Spicy Lamb Sausage Ragu with Orecchiette & Broccoli Rabe

Look for lamb stock or broth, which adds a rich flavor to the ragu, at Whole Foods and other large markets. I also use lamb stock to make gravy for lamb meat loaf or roast lamb. -- Rach
