It’s an exciting time to be cooking when farmers’ market stands and super market bins are loaded with summer produce. The Weekday Supper tastemakers have been working overtime to develop recipes using seasonal produce. Here is a preview of the menu to come:
Farm Fresh Pasta Primavera From A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures
Farm Fresh Pasta Primavera Alfredo is a vegetarian entree that’s on the table in under 30 minutes. Reduced or fat-free dairy products lighten the calorie load of traditional Alfredo sauce.
Summer Veggie Pasta from A Day in the Life on the Farm
Summer Veggie Pasta is one of those dishes that be made from what you have in the refrigerator. I used asparagus, scallions, grape tomatoes and some ricotta to toss with pasta but there’s plenty of room for improvisation.
Summer Minestrone with Lemon-Parsley Pesto from Planet On A Plate
Summer Minestrone is loaded with the flavors of the season, including zucchini and yellow squash. A dollop of lemon-parsley pesto adds a tangy punch to this refreshing soup.
Eggplant Meatballs from Feed Me, Seymour
These eggplant meatballs have quickly become a family favorite, with lots of hearty and filling eggplant and a great breadcrumb crunch. In the summer months, there is never a lack of fresh, delectable produce to choose for your meals.
BBQ Jerk Chicken from The Petit Gourmet
Jerk chicken is flavored with a Jamaican seasoning that includes Scotch bonnet peppers and allspice, among other spices. The versatile seasoning can also used on pork, seafood and vegetables dishes.
