Chicken Couscous Wraps with Red Pepper Mayonnaise
In the summer, prepare the couscous and the roasted pepper mayonnaise in the kitchen, then head outside to the barbecue. When it's too cold, grill the chicken on an indoor grill or grill pan.
Instead of taking the time to layer lasagna, capture the dish's classic flavours by tossing everything together in a pot. Parmesan and Romano cheeses are excellent substitutes if you can't find Asiago.
Chicken with Creamy Pesto Sauce
Chicken breasts are a standby ingredient, but frankly, if it's flavour you like, they need help. Hence, here is a basil-mushroom sauce you can tart up with cream or keep lower in fat with evaporated milk.
Roast Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Garlic
This is a superb roast to serve for family gatherings. The double loin is enough for 12 servings, so you can have eight around the table for the hot roast, vegetables and gravy, with leftovers of meat for four the next day. Roasting with convection heat cuts the time by about a quarter.
