As temperatures warm and sunlight continues to grace our wooded enclave, spring has reached the pinnacle as it begins the transition into glorious summer. This week’s box features the debut of such early summer favorites as juicy Rainier cherries, speckly crunchy lettuces and beefsteak tomatoes. Utilize these seasonal favorites alongside fresh Pain au Levain bread and a light and lovely pasta crafted with Lagana Foods campanelle, chicken Italian sausage and Grana cheese-kissed roasted broccolini. Enjoy!
Here are some recipe ideas for the week:
Campanelle with Chicken Italian Sausage & Grana Roasted Broccolini
Also tossed with lemon juice and zest, this light and lovely pasta is a snap to prepare.
Grana Roasted Broccolini
Topped with garlic breadcrumbs and nutty Grana cheese, this crisp-tender broccolini is fantastic tossed with pasta or served atop grilled bread with a poached egg.
Beefsteak Tomato Salad
Simple to make but big on taste, this salad is all about the quality of the ingredients, so use the best you have.
These smoky charred slices are an excellent base for cherry tomato salsa, fresh cheese, or any other topping you can dream up.
Fennel & Lemon Relish
This crisp slaw from Alice Waters’ The Art of Simple Food II is excellent tossed with grilled veggies such as summer squash.
