What you will need and where to find it:

  • Pistachio Macaroons – Oh La Vache
  • 25 Year Aged Balsamic – Rideout Bistro Oils
  • Fresh Rosemary Sprig – Gilbert Farms

This week, make it an easy and elegant Italian supper to chase away the chill.  Start with Pasta Designs Spinach and Walnut Ravioli and Fresh Marinara Sauce.  While at Pasta Designs booth also pick up the Burrata Cheese.  Next booth over purchase a bottle of Thyme of Essence Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Then head over to Oh La Vache for the Ciabatta Bread and Pistachio Macaroons.  Just around the corner at Rideout Bistro Oils pick up the 25 year Aged Balsamic and then stroll past the live music this week and head to the Certified Farmers area for Fresh Rosemary Spigs from Gilbert Farms then select some beautiful ripe red grapes from Smit Orchards.


Once home, take out the Ciabatta loaf and brush lightly with Thyme of Essence Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle with fresh rosemary and a pinch of garlic powder.  Wrap the loaf in foil, placing fresh Rosemary Sprigs along side of the bread.


Set the oven to 350 degrees and place your Ciabatta loaf wrapped in foil inside.  Then clean the grapes and pat dry.  Over low temperature on the stove, begin warming the marinara sauce at low heat.  Next, fill a 4 quart pan with water and a pinch of sea salt and bring to a boil. 


Place the Burrata on one end of a large platter and drizzle with the Aged Balsamic.  Slice 4 of the fresh Basil leaves into thin ribbons.  Now, place the ravioli in the water for two minutes and drain immediately.  Gently toss the ravioli in the warm Marinara sauce and serve in pasta bowls topped with basil ribbons.  Remove the Ciabatta from the oven and place on the platter with the Ciabatta.  Serve all immediately.


For dessert, place a small red grape bunch on a dessert plate with two pistachio macaroons …

Boun Appetito!
