Spring Vegetable Ragout with Fresh Pasta

One of our members shared this recipe -- if you're not sure how to use your peas yet, you may want to try this!

She said:  "I used peas, zucchini, broccoli and carrots. Didn't have any herbs and forgot to put the lemon zest...and it was FANTASTIC!!!!!"

Final Order for March 13th, 2009

Storage tips for this week:

If you are avoiding plastics and aluminum foil for health reasons, try using the green bags which are sold at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I highly recommend them. They will prolong the life of anything you put into it. Just read the package directions for proper use. Although expensive, they are reusable, up to 8 times. Also, Bed, Bath and Beyond has wonderful coupons for 20% off. In spite of the expiration date on them, the store will honor them indefinitely.

If there is anything you do not want in your share, please switch it for something from our bonus table. We hope you enjoy the selection.
