This week’s box is packed with the vibrant flavors of Italy—plus health-boosting, vitamin-rich produce, too, from hearty kale (on display in our wintery kale-hazelnut pesto) to beautiful Black Trumpet mushrooms, crisp carrots and fresh leeks. Enjoy these seasonal all-stars alongside a rustic pasta supper topped with pasture-fed pork sausage and Tomme cheese, a robust Cabernet Franc and warm galette tart crafted with Bosc pears.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Mashed Potatoes & Rutabaga
Tip: The waxy outer skin of the rutabaga is much easier to remove after a quick 2-3 minute zap in the microwave.
Baked Winter Squash with Sage
Roasted inverted on the pan, savory winter squash is amplified by a stuffing of winter herbs and leeks.
Rustic Pear Galette
This country-style tart allows ripe Bosc pears to shine, kissed with brown sugar and a gorgeous honey glaze.
