Valerie Bertinelli makes four go-to wholesome weeknight recipes


Actress, TV personality, and cookbook author Valerie Bertinelli comes to us TODAY to share some of her easy and healthy entertainment recipes. She shows us how to make roasted cod with a nutty tropical topping, pasta salad with eggplant, an impressive asparagus and goat cheese cake and a calming chamomile nightcap cocktail.

This dish is quick, easy, and impressed. The unusual combination of spices and coconut makes this tender white fish particularly aromatic.

This is a great dish for anyone who thinks they don’t like eggplant. If you salt and cook the eggplant until it is soft and creamy, it will melt into the hot noodles. It’s also an easy and hearty vegetarian meal!

This pie is quick, easy, and impressed. The light aromas of lemon and herbs add to the flavor of the goat cheese and make the cake light but satisfying.

I love to end an evening with a warming nightcap. The soothing chamomile tea, soothing honey and light lemon perfectly complement the subtle bite of the whiskey.
