Thank you everyone for your wonderful birthday wishes! I had a lovely birthday surrounded by wonderful friends and family. Just how birthdays are supposed to be!
The past few days at the farm have been very busy. Lots of tomatoes are coming in, and unfortunately the weeds are coming in just as fast. We are all spending the day hunched over working hard to keep up!
The good news about all this hard work is that it really works up an appetite. Both Taylor and I have been famished recently and to tonight we made an amazingly delicious and healthy meal to ease our back pain. (literally)
Roasted carrot and veggie pasta
For the carrot purée
About 1 pound small carrots
1/4 cup goat cheese
1-2 tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup hot water water
Toss carrots in about 1 tbs oil. Sprinkle with salt. Roast in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Cook any type of pasta according to directions.
Meanwhile, Steam some broccoli and string beans.
Blend the cooked pasta, veggies and carrot purée together. Top with Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
