Dysfunctional Chef presents September’s Cheap n’ Easy Eats

Want to eat healthy and save money?  Then buy ‘seasonal foods.’  It makes perfect sense.  When foods are in season, they are plentiful and, therefore, cost less.  It’s the ole supply n’ demand theory.

Cucumber
Curly Kale
Figs
French Beans
Garlic
Horseradish
Leeks
Lettuce
Mushrooms
Nectarines
New Potatoes
Peaches
Pears
Plums

Squash
Sweet Corn
Tomatoes
And NOW for the recipe … a 5 Yum Event!

Walk on the Mild Side of Pasta!

:

8 oz (2-2 1/2 c) Farfalle pasta

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

4 oz turkey sausage; cut into small pieces

2 small shallots; minced

10 oz frozen spinach; thawed and drained  (when in season, feel free to use FRESH SPINACH; saute in a little bit of oil and extra virgin olive oil until wilted)

0.5 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp kosher salt

0.5 ground black pepper

1/2 c low sodium chicken stock

1/4 c Parmesan cheese + 1 tbsp cheese to sprinkle on individual dish

Instructions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat a large sauté pan and add oil. Add turkey sausage pieces to the pan and cook until nicely browned.
  3. Add shallots, spinach, nutmeg, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and cook for a couple of minutes.

  6. Serve immediately and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.Spread the word … NOT the icing!
