Using that yummy arugula pesto, I combined Italian pasta, Spanish manchego cheese & veggies from my farmers market to create a delicious spring dinner. The inspiration came from what's growing in my neighborhood right now! The arugula from my garden, asparagus from TLV Tree Farm & patty pan squash from a Virginia farm.
Make this with whatever's in your CSA box or at your local farm stand!
Don't forget about the sweet stuff too - strawberries are inundating all of my farmers markets! When we aren't eating them out of the box, we slice, macerate in vanilla sugar, and toss over a buttermilk cake from Stonehouse Bakery.
