Take a break from the holiday hustle: In the grand tradition of our own Nonna Pat’s long-standing Sunday suppers, this week’s box includes fixings for a simple, satisfying meal to share with your nearest and dearest—from Nonna’s own handcrafted marinara sauce and fresh semolina spaghetti to fresh pillowy focaccia bread and a lovely French Pinot Noir to serve alongside. Also included: Nutty Grana-style cheese from the creamery, sweet and spicy Italian-style cookies and a plethora of winter’s produce that includes curly kale, hybrid winter squash, pomegranates, apples, pears and more. Happy holidays!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Grana Cheese with Honey & Red Pepper Flakes
The success of this lovely appetizer depends entirely on the quality of the ingredients, so don’t scrimp!
Beet, Carrot & Pomegranate Salad
This colorful salad is sure to brighten up your table.
Seasoned with salt and pepper, these leeks make for a satisfying side.
Kale Gratin with Parmesan Bread Crumbs
This no-guilt gratin skips the cream, but still boasts big flavor thanks to a topping of toasty bread crumbs.
Roasted Carrots & Parsnips with Shallots
This recipe works well with any number of root vegetables—use whatever you have in your crisper!
Toss these preserved beauties with roasted fingerlings potatoes, or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.
