Zoodles with Sundried Tomato & Basil Sauce

Zoodles (the really adorable name for zucchini noodles) are a great alternative to pasta. These spiralized beauties are topped with a garlicky tomato-basil sauce that might even make you forget that you’re not eating real pasta.

Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Penne

This versatile Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Penne is perfect for a quick and comforting meal. Al dente pasta is tossed with zippy sun dried tomatoes, creamy local goat cheese, and healthy broccoli to help you satisfy your daily requirements of carbs, dairy, and vegetables. If broccoli isn’t in season, replace it with greens (arugula is great!), roasted eggplant, or whatever veggie you have on hand.
