This summer our family joined Riverbound Farm's CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and we have been enjoying incredible, fresh, organic produce.
This week KX News came out to run a feature story on the farm. I was there for my weekly produce pick up and was able to share some of our thoughts on our experience with this first season of CSA at Riverbound Farm. The Summer Share is nearly over, but there are sign ups now for the Winter share which will run from October 12 through December. More information on the Winter Shares can be found here.
I am excited about enjoying another month of delicious tomatoes and perhaps even making some spaghetti sauce to tide us through the winter.
For now, enjoy this recipe for Riverbound Farm Pasta.
Riverbound Farm Pasta
1 pound North Dakota grown wheat bowtie pasta, cooked and drained
3 medium sized yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
4 medium tomatoes
2 cloves minced garlic
I cup shredded swiss cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil and butter over medium heat in a large frying pan.
Lightly saute the summer squash. Add the garlic near the end of the cook time.
Toss the cooked pasta with the squash, chopped tomatoes, and swiss cheese, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
I leave the tomato chunks rather large so that my tomato averse children can pick them out easily. Other fresh vegetables also work well in this super quick pasta toss, feel free to add sliced mushrooms, onions, carrots, or whatever else suits your fancy! This meal is satisfying, delicious and comes together in a snap!
