Paltrow has said a classic Niçoise salad is one of favorite meals. She turns the dish into a hearty one-pan dinner by roasting tuna steaks on top of tomatoes, olives, anchovies, and asparagus. Egg-filled ramekins bake at the same time.

This simple pasta dish is an homage to the fried zucchini Paltrow often ordered at Elio's, an Italian restaurant on Manhattan's Upper East Side, when she was growing up. Golden, lightly fried zucchini slices are scattered on top of al dente spaghetti along with basil, Parmesan, and lemon for a fast, elegant summer meal.

French-Onion-Style White Bean Soup

"I've always loved the idea of French onion soup without actually liking the soup itself," says Paltrow of this recipe, made with slow-cooked onions, vegetable stock, and cannellini beans. She was inspired by a dish served at Los Angeles French restaurant La Serre, where she used to eat with her father.
