From fresh, organic Italian sausage from Skagit River Ranch to hand-crafted gemelli pasta, this week’s box has you prepped for pasta night. Also including a gorgeous bounty of produce to add into your pasta as you please—think such favorites as Tropea onions, Lacinato kale and Jimmy Nardello peppers—plus sweet, licorice-flavored fennel flowers, corn and salad cucumbers, this late-summer lineup is also accented by Pomodoro bread, farmstead eggs and ripe-and-ready yellow peaches and Canadice grapes from the Grapehouse. Mangia!
