Pea pesto linguini (from Kari circa 2011)

Pasta tossed it with pea puree and a bit of reserved water from the pasta. The baby heirloom tomatoes she sautéed in a pan with a bit of olive oil and s&p and put shaved pecorino Romano and fresh basil over the top….would also be good with red pepper flakes for some spice.

Pea Puree
1 bag frozen peas – room temperature
1 cube TJ’s chopped garlic
Juice of I lime
Fresh basil chopped
s&p

Blend all ingredients….she add a little olive oil and warm water until it gets to the desired consistency. You can definitely mix this up……she has added a whole avocado to the mixture, you can substitute arugula instead of basil. There is a lot of room to change this up!

  2. Shipping and packaging material is minimal and 100% recyclable (unlike many other companies)
  3. You can do a family order for 4 (more than enough food for the 5 of us) or a an order for 2 adults – 2 different menu options and you can choose 2 out of 6 dinners each week
  4. Recipes are fresh, good quality and simple
  5. Food lasts for up to 5 days after receiving so you can use later in the week if needed
