  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Heat oil in ovenproof Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium-high heat. Add roast; cook 4 min. on each side or until evenly browned on both sides. Mix broth, dressing and 1 Tbsp. capers. Pour over roast; cover.
  • Bake 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until roast is done (160°F). Remove from oven. Ladle meat drippings into small saucepan. Let roast stand, covered, until ready to slice to serve.
  • Cook pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt and adding carrots to the boiling water for the last 6 min. and leeks for the last minute. Meanwhile, bring meat drippings to boil. Mix cornstarch and water; whisk into meat drippings. Cook and stir 2 min. or until slightly thickened. Stir in remaining capers.
  • Slice roast. Serve with pasta and sauce.


To quickly thaw frozen vegetables to add to a pasta dish, drain the hot water from cooking the pasta over frozen veggies in the colander! Or, add the frozen vegetables to the pasta cooking water for the last few minutes of cook time then drain along with the pasta.

Preparing Leeks

Leeks are grown in sandy soil and must be washed well before using. To prepare leeks, trim the roots and remove the dark green portions. Only the white portion of the leek is used. Chop or slice the white sections, then rinse in water to remove any soil or sand.

How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness

The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
