Ina Garten is no stranger to new renditions of classic, comforting recipes. Updated chicken Marbella? Black and white cookies? Check and check. So it makes perfect sense that her newest cookbook, Modern Comfort Food, is chock full of nostalgic, satisfying dishes, like this roasted broccolini and cheddar (her classy take on a green veggie smothered in cheese).
“In the 1950s, cooks used to hide frozen vegetables under some mystery ‘cheese’ sauce,” the Contessa writes. “The combination of green vegetables and cheese was a good idea but I prefer roasting broccolini (it’s sweeter and more tender than broccoli) and, instead of making a sauce, I simply melt good sharp Cheddar on the broccolini.”
Best of all, it takes less than 20 minutes to make and calls for just five ingredients. This is—dare we say?—genius.
