Summer Heat Recipes

Temperatures are rising, and we’re turning up the heat in the kitchen, too, giving you a spicy pasta supper in this week’s box—a rustic rigatoni beautifully balanced by creamy aged Vecchio cheese and our housemade ‘Sugo All’amatriciana’ crafted from sun-ripened tomatoes, garlic and chili flakes. To go alongside, a chewy Pain au Levain loaf, bright Italian vinaigrette to pair with salad greens and a medium-bodied Spanish wine complete this simply-perfect summer meal.

Here are a few recipe ideas for this week:

Purple Potato Salad with Baby Fennel
Fennel adds a subtle anise flavor to sweet, mild purple potatoes in this beautiful salad.

Fennel Citrus Salad
This classic Sicilian salad can be topped with any variety of citrus; try it with grapefruit, blood orange or Cara Cara oranges!

Red Radish Spread with Fresh Herbs
This cool, creamy spread is wonderful slathered atop baguette slices on a hot summer day.
