Everyone loves mac and cheese! Our quick and easy stovetop mac & cheese recipe comes together in 20 minutes. Topped with bacon, this might well be the most satisfying version of the classic dish.

With bacon, fresh fava beans, and morel mushrooms, this orzo recipe is fast and easy to make and is a great side dish for lamb, pork, chicken, or veal. Fresh morels would be the first choice but substitute dried morels if they are out of season.
