The Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…

Avocado Egg Bake

Picture & Recipe Courtesy of www.WellnessMama.com

With beautiful, fresh, and not to mention HUGE avocados at the Market each week (thanks to Atkins Nursery), we couldn’t resist putting together a delicious and unique breakfast with them!  This is the perfect way to create a farm fresh nutritious breakfast that your family will love too.  This exact recipe was created by “Wellness Mama” at www.wellnessmama.com.

What You Will Need and Where to Find it:
  • 2 large avocados (atkins nursery)
  • 4 farm fresh eggs (forgotten pastures)
  • salt and pepper
  • Toppings of choice: We recommend Mama Lydia’s Red Salsa or Fresh Green Salsa from Gourmet Tamales!

To Prepare:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pit. Put avocados open side up in a large baking dish. If they are small avocados, scoop out a little of the extra flesh to make more room.
  2. Crack an egg in each avocado half and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until egg is desired doneness. Approximately 17 minutes
  3. Top with desired toppings while still hot and eat up!  Yum!
Enjoy!

The Fresh Market Recipe of the Week is…

“Quick Farmers Market Pasta”

Photo and Recipe Courtesy of FoodNetwork.com

Photo and Recipe Courtesy of www.FoodNetwork.com

I came across this recipe on the Food Network and couldn’t help my stomach from rumbling!  What better way to use fresh Alpine Farmers Market ingredients than to mix them into a light, delicious pasta? I have upgraded the recipe a little bit to incorporate even more of our delicious Market ingredients…YUM!  Find the original recipe HERE.

What You Will Need and Where to Find it:

 

sage-mountain-farms-sqaush
  • 3 cloves garlic (Majestic Garlic)
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes (Rancho Chico)
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more as needed (for an extra delicious kick, try Rideout Bistro Oil’s Meyer Lemon Olive Oil)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 pound loose pork sausage (Sage Mountain Farms)
  • 2 to 3 small zucchini, sliced (Sage Mountain Farms)
  • 1 Yellow Crookneck Squash, star squash or any other squash, sliced (Sage Mountain Farms)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 bunch fresh lemon basil leaves (Sage Mountain Farms)

 

Let’s Get Cooking!

 

In a large heavy saute pan add the sliced garlic and the clusters of cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with the Meyer Lemon olive oil (or regular olive oil) and season with salt and pepper. Put the pan over low-medium heat on the stove top and cook slowly until the tomatoes are just about falling apart and their juices have been extracted into the olive oil forming a nice sauce, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve a few roasted tomatoes for garnish.  Puree or squash the remaining tomatoes in the pan, with a spoon, so you have nice chunky pieces of tomato in all the delicious tomato juice and olive oil. Stir in the sugar. This will be the sauce for the pasta.

In a large saute pan heat a 3-count of olive oil (or Meyer Lemon olive oil) and saute the loose pork sausage until brown and caramelized. Remove and set aside on a plate while you cook the zucchini and crookneck squash. To the same pan add some more olive oil (or Meyer Lemon olive oil) and saute the zucchini and Crookneck Squash until caramelized around the edges, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage back to the pan and toss in pasta and the tomato sauce. Mix well over high heat to ensure everything is heated through and evenly coated. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter.

To serve, sprinkle with Parmesan (optional), basil leaves and top with a the roasted cherry tomatoes that you set aside.

Enjoy!
