The 17 Best Recipes Our Food Staff Cooked Last Month

March is a strange time of year. It heralds the arrival of spring, but some of us are not out of winter’s icy grip just yet. The New York Times Food team cooked accordingly. While we still turned to hearty meals — seafood stews, a big pot of beans and birthday baked ziti — we also dipped our toes into the pool of spring produce. (A full-throated hello to our dear friend asparagus.) Here are our favorite recipes we cooked last month.

I cooked a lot of old standby dishes in March: Alana Kysar’s huli huli chicken is always a winner. I use boneless thighs and roast them on racks in the oven. (Come summer, I’ll grill them.) Colu Henry’s pasta e ceci is a great 30-minute meal, so I make it a lot, but my 6-year-old has developed an aversion to chickpeas, so I substitute cannellini or Great Northern

Inspired by Indonesian flavors, this Seitan Burger by Nina Olsson is a delight for peanut lovers. Creamy peanut sauce, a.k.a. satay sauce, spiked with coconut and tamarind is the perfect companion to bean sprouts and spicy seitan. Seitan is a by-product of yeast. Here it’s used like an Asian version of faux pulled pork rather than formed into a firmer patty. It’s scrumptious with savory sauces like satay or other curries. You’ll find seitan

TikTok calls new ‘honeycomb pasta’ recipe an ‘affront’ to food: ‘Screaming’

Throw out your feta, because there’s a new divisive dish on TikTok — and it’s called honeycomb pasta.

Anna Rothfuss racked up almost 12 million views with her video tutorial showing how she makes something called “honeycomb pasta.” The meal, which is also sometimes called honeycomb cannelloni or rigatoni pie, is sort of a lasagna-cake hybrid.

“I’m going to put sauce all over the whole thing,” Rothfuss went on to say as she dumped a jar of marinara sauce onto the pasta. “Then,
