Remember to buy as many Organic and local products as possible, to guarantee you and your family are eating the cleanest, freshest and healthiest products (Not to mention helping support our earth!)  

Spring Is Here Pasta Toss
  • Package dry organic pasta (Try Quinoa Pasta – it is gluten free and quinoa is a tasty “supergrain”)
  • 1/2 c. walnuts
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 c. vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. both salt & pepper
  • 1/4 c. fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 package button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 package cherry tomatoes, halved

Boil pasta according to package directions. In a food processor or blender, combine the nuts, parsley, and garlic until minced. Add the broth, salt, pepper, and fresh juice and blend until well combined. In a large saucepan, saute the zucchini, carrots and mushrooms in the sauce until carrots are slightly tender. Toss pasta with the veggies and sauce, and top with tomatoes. Enjoy amidst the budding flowers of Spring.
