Signing up for our weekly delivery from From the Farmer has been such an amazing experience. Of course it’s so nice to have fresh, local food sent directly to our door step, but it’s also a huge time saver during our busy work week. No more rushing in and out of the grocery store for fresh fruit and veggies. I always forget my shopping list when I go anyway.
One of the challenges can be deciding what new creation to make with all the delicious goodies at hand. This week our box contained mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, spinach and kale. My first thought was to make one of my favorite dishes… pasta. I’ve blogged about this before too (you can click here for that recipe), but it’s fun to find new ways to eat it! We used these fresh ingredients to make a chunky sauce to top those scrumptious noodles.
Handful of mushrooms, 4 large tomatoes, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, handful of spinach, handful of kale
This really isn’t rocket science. We chopped up the above ingredients. Boiled the noodles and then added the kale towards the end. This helped prevent us from over cooking the kale and losing its nutrients and works as a nice garnish as well.
Add 2 tbsp. of oil to a sauce pan and sauté the chopped up veggies on medium heat. We added diced, cooked chicken for protein and and sun dried tomatoes for additional flavorings.
Top with your favorite cheese and seasoning and enjoy!
