While I’ve still got a few more late-Summer recipes in store for you, I was feeling the cozy vibes this morning and decided to whip up a pot of this simple and comforting butternut squash noodle soup.
Think classic chicken noodle soup, but with sweet bits of tender, caramelized butternut squash instead of the chicken, along with al dente ditalini pasta and a few handfuls of leafy kale.
Cozy, hearty, flavorful Autumn goodness.
Sheet pan pizza… or sheet pan flatbread? Pizza has a better ring to it, but if I’m honest, this flatbread/pizza hybrid verges on a really well-flavored focaccia – boasting a thick and chewy crust, with lots of yummy toppings.
Let’s talk about grapes on pizza. Completely weird? Maybe.
But these aren’t your everyday table grapes. Concord grapes are smaller, deeper hued, and intensely flavorful (one reason why they’re often used as “grape” flavoring and to make grape jams and jellies).
Together with sweet, caramelized onions, tangy goat cheese, and a good dusting of parmesan atop a chewy crust, the combination just works. The grapes add a vivid, bright flavor that’s a perfect complement to the savory umami of the other ingredients, proving once again that fruit can definitely go savory, particularly when paired with good cheese.
Our garden got off to a bit of a slow start this year, as ‘Summer’ didn’t really kick in until late July. But after a few weeks of long, hot days, we are finally, thankfully, basking in tomato heaven.
This easy Summer pasta recipe takes full advantage of our August bounty.
Quick burst cherry tomatoes, sweet yellow corn, a few crumbles of tangy goat cheese, and a slathering of umami-rich miso butter, all atop perfectly al dente brown rice pasta… say hello to (late) Summer in a bowl!
