No. 9: Penne with Pistachio-Mint Pesto

This pasta brings in several layers of green — via pistachios, mint, parsley and asparagus. It's a simple and quick comfort food you can toss together for a St. Patrick's Day dinner after a long day.

No. 10: Green Goddess Dressing and Roast Chicken

Rachael Ray Show

Parsley, chives, scallions and tarragon bring a beautiful emerald hue to this delicious dish. The chicken can be prepared and marinated the night before, then all you have to do is pop it in the oven at dinnertime.

Pro Tip: Cooking the chicken on a wire rack set inside a baking sheet allows the heat to hit all sides.
