Rootastes’ Chefs’ Curated Recipes
If you loved last week’s squid ink pasta, our chefs devised another show stopping pasta for you to enjoy. This time it’s pink!
Baked Three Cheese Ravioli with Pink Vodka Cream Sauce and Snap Peas and Red Scallions is a lusciously melty dish with nutty Parmesan and crunchy snap peas. While the recipe may seem complicated, we’ve teamed up with Deano’s Pasta to bring you the shortcuts.
Their Three Cheese Ravioli will get you started, and their bottle of Pink Vodka Cream Sauce will get you finished in a hurry.
Get your veggies in with these summer inspired sides. Summer Balsamic Roasted Root Vegetables tosses potatoes, zucchini, Brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi with balsamic vinegar, rosemary, Italian herbs, honey, and more for a juicy, crunchy, and herbaceously sweet side.
For over the border flavor, our chefs were inspired by a Mexican favorite: street corn! Try their rendition in Summer Street Corn Salad, which pairs the sweet kernel with crunchy snap peas, ripe tomatoes, zippy red scallions, avocado, chicken, cheese, and a bunch of seasonings. Olé!
We can’t get enough salmon, which is why we love experimenting with flavors and cultural influences. Try this Broiled Salmon with Scallions and Sesame that’s sweetened with honey and umami-d with soy sauce.
And if you’re looking for a side and a way to use up potatoes, these Yukon Gold Potato Fans are quirky and oh so crispy.
If you decide to give any of these recipes a try, let us know what you think. We’d also love to see how you’re getting crafty in the kitchen with your basket, so be sure to share your favorite recipes below.
