THE PASTA…

The garlic parsley pasta in your CSA share this week is fresh.  That means that is must be refrigerated or frozen or it will spoil.  We recommend that you freeze the pasta and toss it into salted, boiling water when you are ready to use it (don’t bother defrosting).

The ingredients of the pasta are a 50/50 mix of semolina and durum flours, eggs, water, garlic and parsley.

THE HONEY PUFFED CORN AND PUFFED SPELT

These tasty treats can be eaten in a bowl with milk (as cereal) or included in your favorite trail mix.  It’s also great (especially the honey puffed) right out of your hand for a wholesome snack!

Herbed-Baked Eggs

by Ina Garten

Feel free to substitute dried herbs (in smaller quantities) for fresh1/4 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan (use your Meadowbelle instead!)
6 extra-large eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Toasted French bread or brioche, for servingPreheat the broiler for 5 minutes and place the oven rack 6 inches below the heat.Combine the garlic, thyme, rosemary, parsley, and Parmesan and set aside. Carefully crack 3 eggs into each of 2 small bowls or teacups (you won’t be baking them in these) without breaking the yolks. (It’s very important to have all the eggs ready to go before you start cooking.)Place 2 individual gratin dishes on a baking sheet. Place 1 tablespoon of cream and 1/2 tablespoon of butter in each dish and place under the broiler for about 3 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Quickly, but carefully, pour 3 eggs into each gratin dish and sprinkle evenly with the herb mixture, then sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Place back under the broiler for 5 to 6 minutes, until the whites of the eggs are almost cooked. (Rotate the baking sheet once if they aren’t cooking evenly.) The eggs will continue to cook after you take them out of the oven. Allow to set for 60 seconds and serve hot with toasted bread.
