Forager’s Delight Recipes

recipes-march-26-archived

From red radishes and baby golden beets to the season’s first fiddleheads, spring produce continues to abound, both in the garden and foraged from the wild. This week’s box takes full advantage of these new delights with a light and lovely pasta featuring sautéed fiddleheads, green garlic and parsley butter, plus fresh puntarelle, sorrel and Rumex ‘Raspberry Dressing’ greens. Add to this a loaf of garlic fougasse, a light Zinfandel and housemade galette dough to pair with apples, and let the flavors of spring delight everyone at the table.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Casarecce Pasta with Sautéed Fiddleheads

This light spring pasta is kissed with fiddleheads, fresh green garlic and parsley butter for a delightfully-fresh flavor.

Ingredients:
1 pound Lagana Foods casarecce pasta
¼ pound fiddleheads, thoroughly washed and trimmed
3 bulbs green garlic, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Farm & Larder parsley compound butter
Pinch red pepper flakes
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then add the pasta. Cook until casarecce is al dente, about 7-8 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta water, then drain pasta.

2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once warm, add the fiddleheads and green garlic, tossing to coat with oil. Season with salt, pepper and just a pinch of red pepper flakes, then cover and sweat until ferns are tender and garlic is fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Add drained pasta to the skillet with the fiddleheads and garlic, then toss with the parsley compound butter. If pasta seems a little dry, mix in reserved pasta water. Check for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed.
