Fall Menu #3

Ricotta Dumplings over French Lentils with Sautéed Escarole
Ricotta Dumplings over French Lentils with Sautéed Escarole

 

Serves 6

Roasted Squash Potage with Spiced Crème Fraîche

Baked Fish/Ricotta Dumplings over French Lentils

Sautéed Escarole with Red Pepper Garlic

When the delicate greens of summer subside, revealing a palette of deeper colors beneath:, roots and low-growing hard squash and pumpkins are ready to be harvested. This earthy menu features a creamy, warming soup to start, followed by a hearty lentil casserole studded with plump, tender ricotta dumplings or fillets of firm white fish. The casserole is rounded out by a sauté of escarole, a mild succulent green that deserves to be eaten more often.

 

The Plan

  • 1. Soak the lentils.
  • 2. Prepare the soup.
  • 3. While the soup simmers, cook the lentils.
  • 4. Assemble and bake the lentil dish.
  • 5. Meanwhile, make the spiced crème fraîche.
  • 6. Sauté the escarole.
