Q: I'm a runner, and preparing to carbo load with some whole wheat pasta. Runners are discouraged from eating dairy before a race, so I'm looking for an interesting recipe that doesn't involve butter or cheese.

Editor: Rachel, a good place to start would be this super simple tomato sauce from Marcella Hazan:

It does call for butter, and you could cut that down or substitute some olive oil for a portion of it.

Readers, what else would you suggest?
