Leave it to Chef John of FoodWishes fame to create a recipe for BLT Pasta! What a guy! And what could be more delicious during tomato season than a totally cool dish combing ditalini pasta (small, very short tubes ideal for collecting a creamy sauce) with bacon, lettuce (arugula, in this case), and tomatoes? Let’s see… a little Parmesan cheese and crème fraîche can’t hurt! No wonder this new recipe is this week’s star. I can’t wait to make it.
It seems no one can resist pancakes or blueberries either. Since we’re enjoying one of the best blueberry seasons ever in the Pacific Northwest, maybe that’s spurring home cooks to search for blueberry muffins? Here are this week’s delicious recipe highlights:
- As you've read, the #1 new recipe for the week was Chef John's BLT Pasta
