You guys know we love our garden around here. Every year we learn a little more than the last and it has been so much fun watching and showing the kids how fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs grow.
One thing that does start to happen (even if you succession plant) is the overabundance of things as the season moves on. This is how our family’s “Garden Fresh Pasta” came about.
Last year when we were drowning in peas, squash’s, herbs, etc, etc.. I started trying to curate recipes so that we could use them up.
This pasta tastes so fresh and light and the kids always have fun going outside and picking things from the garden to put in the pasta.
So here it is:
Garden Fresh Pasta
2 cups noodles of your choice
What you (or a friend, neighbour..) have in your garden. Or whatever is in season, or readily available in the produce isle 😉
– I love using things like: zucchini, summer squash, shelled peas, cherry tomatoes, kale, etc..
Clove of garlic
Nutritional yeast (or fresh Parmesan)
salt & pepper
Boil pasta until Al Dente
Saute all the vegetables (except the kale!)
with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper
Drain pasta, let sit.. Then in same hot saucepan; melt butter, add milk, bouillon cube and fresh parmesan until well mixed and melted.
Add pasta to the bowl.
Toss in fresh Kale, 1 tbsp nutritional yeast and a good squeeze of lemon and mix.
Serve onto dishes and add on top: Ingredients by Saputo’s Fresh cocktail sized bocconcini OR their Mozzarellissima
