Expert Tips

  • Asiago is a semi-firm Italian cow's milk cheese with a rich, nutty flavor. Young Asiago is eaten as a table cheese. Aged for a year, Asiago becomes a grand grating cheese that's a bit more moist than Parmesan.
  • Like chives, tarragon is a fragile herb best used fresh. One of the classic herbs in the French fines herbs blend, tarragon's slightly licorice aroma pairs well with fish and vegetables.
  • Serve this easy linguine with a crisp French baguette and a mixed herb and baby greens salad.
