Gather round the table for a hearty helping of simple, delicious fixings. Each unfussy recipe comes together from whole food ingredients to make a rustic meal that's meant to be shared. Feast on platters of Skillet Gnocchi with Italian Sausage, Fall-Apart Balsamic Beef Short Ribs or Perfect Slow-Roasted Salmon. Pair an entree with any number of mouthwatering accompaniments like Charred Broccoli Salad, Black Bean Tostadas with Avocado Mash or Smashed Olive Oil Potatoes with Parmesan. With two or three stress-free dishes paired together, you're in for a satisfying, well-balanced spread.
