What day of the week do you typically do your grocery shopping?
Spring is in the air which means that farmers markets here in Toronto are buzzing and the weekends are a wonderful time to get outdoors and get your fresh produce! For me Spring means RAMP time so you know I couldn’t be more excited to share this new recipe with you.
They are grown all over Canada during this time of year and I LOVE THEM. This recipe is all about showcasing them in their best light.. and complimenting them with this delicious ramp pesto and orzo.
They only appear in the Spring and are around for a short amount of time so IF you are lucky to find some; grab a BUNCH and make a ramp pesto.
I highly recommend saving some ramps for adding to pasta, or you could sauté them in butter to eat as a gorgeous appetizer. If you can’t find them I would suggest spring onions as a swap however; really nothing compares so get the to a farmers market and keep your eyes peeled.
If you are not familiar with Orzo might I take a moment to indulge you; Orzo is a thin, oval, rice-shaped pasta. In Italy, orzo is classified as pastina or “little pasta,” which is a category of very small pastas. It holds the flavours incredibly well and is one of my favourite pastas to work with.
