Warm and cozy, yet fresh and flavorful, this week’s lineup is inspired by the best in Italian cooking—from imported olive oil and Grana-style cheese to our housemade bolognese sauce and locally-made bucatini pasta. Also included for your pasta night: Pain au Levain bread and such winter all-stars as Murcott mandarins, microgreens, red kale and broccolini. As they say in Italy, mangia!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Lemon-Thyme Infused Olive Oil
Set out a bowl of this infused oil alongside some freshly-sliced bread and watch it disappear before dinner!
Balsamic-Glazed Root Vegetables
An herb-packed marinade infuses fresh flavor into winter staples like carrots and parsnips.
Baby Carrots Marinated with Garlic & Oregano
This room-temperature dish packs in the flavor.
Broccolini with Vin Cotto
Coated in a balsamic vinegar glaze, this garlic-flecked broccolini makes for a warm, homey side dish.
Crispy Parsnip Chips
These lightly-salted baked chips are a wonderful afternoon snack.
Spinach & Cheese Strata
Put this week’s bread loaf to good use with this spinach-kissed breakfast strata.
