Grilled Asparagus with Poached Egg, Parmigiano and Lemon Zest

Although it may not seem like it, poached eggs are the perfect make-ahead brunch. You cook them just enough to set ahead of time and store in cold water. When it's time to eat, you (gently) drop them back in simmering water to warm through and breakfast is served.

Torta Pasqualina

For this version of the savory Italian Easter pie that originated in Liguria, I scaled down the traditional 33 layers of flaky olive oil crust to 12, as many modern cooks do. The filling is made with a combination of Swiss chard and baby spinach that I braise until dry -- it lets me skip the steps of blanching, squeezing and sauteing. I add a little yogurt to the ricotta to mimic the flavor and texture of tangy prescinseua cheese, often used in the torta but unavailable in the United States. Don't be afraid of the 12-layer crust! It's easier than you think and much more forgiving than regular pie dough.
