Recipe- Goat Cheese Pasta with Micro Greens

Goat Cheese Pasta with Micro Greens


 Ingredients:
1 (8 oz.) package kale rigatoni
1 (8 oz.) package rosemary garlic rigatoni
1 lb. smoked kielbasa (sliced)
1/4 cup goat milk cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
1 container brown mustard micro greens (approx. 1 cup)
1 container sunflower micro greens (approx. 1 cup)
4 medium cloves garlic (minced)
8 medium turnips (sliced) and about 1 cup turnip greens (chopped)
2 tablespoons butter

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions. Strain and add goat milk cheese and parmesan cheese, set aside.  To a large frying pan add butter, kielbasa and turnip roots.  Cook over medium heat until turnips are slightly browned and softened, and kielbasa is slightly browned.  Then add garlic and turnip greens, cook until greens start to wilt, then add micro greens and cook until just wilted (will not take very long).  Remove from heat, add pasta, combine and serve.

Note:  If you do not have any turnip greens or micro greens you and change things up by adding any type of greens that you like, maybe some arugula or kale.  You can also use any type of rigatoni pasta you like, but I would suggest a thicker type of pasta for this recipe, which is why I used the rigatoni.


Digging Dahlias

I almost have all my dahlias dug for the winter.  Yesterday I finished up digging most of the rest of my tubers.  Here is a picture of almost half of my dahlias, that I dug out about a week ago.  Overall I was pretty happy with the tubers that I ended up digging.  Considering that we had a bad growing year, too much water then too dry, I ended up digging out some large, nice looking tubers.


I can not wait till next year when I can have this again.

Brunswick Pumpkin Festival 2014

Just wanted to do a quick post with some pictures of our table, from the first pumpkin festival at Brunswick farmers market this past Sunday.  I also wanted to thank all our customers that stopped by on Sunday, and all our customers from both Valley City and Brunswick farmers markets.  It is hard to believe that both of our farmers markets have already come to an end for the year.
