Winter Minestrone

Pureed cannellini beans with beef broth add creaminess to this hearty soup, and whole cannellini beans add another layer of texture. Giada De Laurentiis' secret weapon in this recipe is a frozen Parmesan rind: It melts slowly and adds a salty, buttery flavor to the soup.

Taco Pockets

Rachael Ray adds onions directly into beef patties so they keep a little bit of extra moisture. Turning the lean meat and traditional taco seasonings into patties makes the finished dish much easier to eat in a soft tortilla wrap.

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Eggs and Parmesan cheese act as a thickener to make a creamy sauce for this pasta. The eggs will cook as the mixture is stirred into the hot spaghetti. To thin out the sauce, add a bit of reserved pasta water.
