When many regions lay claim to a dish, that means a couple of things. First, it’s so good that people want credit. And, secondly, there are bound to be many variations.

Synergy Pasta. A simple meal I often make where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Strata: An all in one dish, perfect for a make-ahead breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
