We suspect these will become part of your treasured recipe collection, too.
Sophisticated add-ins make this pasta casserole a deliciously rich dish for special occasions. As one tester says, "Crispy golden-brown top, creamy brie, nice light crab flavor -- love it!"
Bright lemon and dill combine to make the zesty gremolata that tops our favorite creamy fall soup. As one tester says, "It's the best roasted mushroom soup I've ever had!"
Take it from a taster: "Oh my gosh! Lovely, interesting, yummy, delicious -- this pie has great flavor and pretty garnishes -- a home run!" says one of our editors. We love the way it combines traditional pumpkin pie with the rich flavors of hazelnut and dulce de leche.

The secret to this savory brunch tart? According to our Test Kitchen staff, it's quince, which tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear, and should be peeled and cooked for optimum flavor. We're also obsessed with the finely chopped prosciutto found in the flaky crust of this delicious tart.
