Farmer’s Market Finds

This morning we took a stroll through the Mountain View Farmer’s Market and picked up some summer goodies…berries, apricots, artichokes, and vegan pappardelle from Santa Cruz Pasta Factory – which I served for dinner with pesto (see below).

I boiled the pappardelle noodles in salted water to go with homemade spinach walnut pesto from my previous post. To make the pesto a little more creamy, I thawed it in a sauce pan over medium heat, and added about a tablespoon each of whipping cream, olive oil and parmesan. Once the sauce was added to the drained pappardelle noodles, I cooked the mixture over low heat and added more salt. The pasta was served with freshly grated parmesan.
