Check out this link for Moonblush Tomatoes, shared by a CSA member. Thank you Shana! This is delicious and easy, and the method can be used for any tomatoes. The red slicers in the share work perfectly.


Pasta with creamy leeks, sweet pepper, arugula and tomatoes

I love making pasta creations with whatever veggies are in the share. This is an exceptionally good one, in my humble opinion, and so pretty!


1 box fusili pasta or shape of your choice

1 -2 leeks, washed well and thinly sliced whites

Optional: well-cleaned, thinly sliced tops

2 sweet peppers, de-seeded and thinly sliced

3-4 medium slicing tomatoes, or 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, or combo

handful arugula  or fresh basil(optional)

olive oil & butter

freshly grated parmesan or asiago cheese

salt and pepper


Cook pasta according to directions. In large heavy-bottomed skillet, melt 2-3 tbsp. butter with 2 -3 tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. Add leeks and reduce heat to medium low. Saute gently for about 5 - 10 minutes, until very tender. Add sweet pepper and saute several minutes more, until tender. Add chopped slicing tomatoes or halved grape/cherry tomatoes. Add sea salt and ground black pepper, a good amount of each.

Toss hot pasta with olive oil. Place a mound of pasta on each plate. Top with vegetable mixture, some chopped fresh arugula and/or basil, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Serve.


Mexican-inspired squash skillet

We love pairing the sweet squashes or sweet potatoes with the warming spices of cumin, and smoked paprika in this one-pot dish, and my kids love it for all the toppings!


2 delicata squash OR 2 medium or 1 large sweet potatoes, OR 1 small or 1/2 large butternut squash

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 sweet or green peppers, de-seeded and chopped

coconut oil, butter, olive oil or ghee

salt and pepper

ground cumin, smoked paprika, chili powder

hot pepper or cayenne (optional)

optional other ingredients: 1 can or 1 cup cooked black beans, 1 cup cooked rice, 1/2 cup sweet corn (fresh or frozen), chopped cooking greens such as spinach, kale, etc.

Toppings: grated cheese, salsa, sour cream, chopped lettuce or arugula, chopped cilantro

Warmed wraps


For delicata squash, cut in half, remove seeds, and chop into small chunks or half moons.

For sweet potatoes, wash and scrub skins and and cut into 1 inch chunks. (May peel if desired.)

For butternut, cut in half, remove seeds, peel, and cut into 1 inch chunks.

In large heavy skillet, saute onion in choice of fat over medium heat until tender, a few minutes. Add cumin, smoked paprika, chili powder to your liking (a good dash of each is nice). Add garlic and prepared squash. Reduce heat to medium low and saute until almost tender, about 5-10 minutes. (Can add some broth, water, or orange juice and cover with lid to soften squash easily, and without constant stirring.)

Add peppers and any optional ingredients, such as beans, corn, greens, etc. Cook another few minutes until everything is hot and tender. Add salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.

Serve with optional toppings in bowls or with warm tortillas.
