In the tradition of our own Nonna Pat’s long-standing Sunday suppers, this week’s box includes fixings for a leisurely meal to share with your nearest and dearest: Fresh linguine pasta tossed with Nonna Pat’s spicy-savory Puttanesca sauce and Grana-style cheese from our farmstead creamery, plus rustic Italian bread accompanied by a robust Sicilian wine. Side dish-worthy produce including kale rapini, radicchio and Swiss chard, as well as hand-pressed grape cider, help to round out this hearty Italian meal.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
