Italian Summer Recipes

The Italian summer calls to mind visions of a crisp glass of wine, homemade pasta and garden-fresh produce simply and beautifully prepared. Hence, this week’s box captures the flavors of summer by way of Italy with locally-crafted bucatini pasta tossed with our own fragrant housemade basil pesto and Grana-style cheese, plus a fresh sourdough baguette and a bevy of beautiful salad greens and ingredients like beets, carrots and sugar snap peas. Also included for this relaxed, refreshing meal: A classic French rosé and the first of the summer raspberries. Mangia!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
