Taste the Flavors of Summer – Yellow Pepper Pasta!

There’s nothing like Fresh Basil in the summer! Like many gardeners at this time of year, my neighbor found herself with an abundance of the beautiful green herb, so this week PastaPresta will be offering Farm Fresh Egg pasta salad with golden cherry tomatoes, pine nuts and homemade pesto. Stop by and give it a try.

We make our pasta fresh daily on site from ingredients we personally source from local farms… so you know you’re getting a product that is all natural, preservative free and nutrient rich.  And this weekend, you’re in for a treat–Roasted Yellow Bell Pepper Pasta. You can have it custom cut into Spaghetti, Linguini, Fettuccine, Pappadella or Lasagna sheets. It’s not only good, but amazingly nutritious.

These colorful summer vegetables are filled with fiber, antioxidants and vitamin C. The bright colors from plant pigments are called carotenoids. These pigments act like sunscreen, protecting the ripening peppers from sun damage. As it turns out, those pigments have a similar safeguarding effect on us. So peppers are an excellent choice during the summer months.

 

We’ll also have our Farm Fresh Egg, Spinach and Whole Wheat Pasta — so stop in this weekend and pick up the summer’s best flavors for your dinner table!

 And while you’re in the SoNo Marketplace, enjoy the fabulous music line up this weekend!

The farm produce that adds a delicate flavor to our pasta, is hand-picked at its peak when it is bursting with flavor and nutrients as fresh as they would be if you harvested them from your own garden. Add some garden tomatoes, zucchini, garlic and olive oil and you’ve got the perfect summer supper.

Or pair your fresh herb pasta with our new PastaPresta Private Label Pestos–Sun Dried Tomato or Spinach and Artichoke, made in Maine in small batch, handcrafted preparation with all-natural ingredients.
