More CSA Meals
So the mystery herb was definitely oregano! Tonight we had a fantastic dinner of sausage and peppers.
Now, I made it differently than usual because I had so many fresh ingredients. Here's the recipe I used tonight:
4 sweet Italian sausages (from the farm market)
The head of the giant spring onion from the CSA, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 garlic curl, chopped
large pinch of salt
some freshly ground pepper
leaves from 2 stems of fresh oregano (from our CSA--yay!)
scant cup of water
Brown sausages on all sides, remove from pan, slice into bite-sized pieces, and return to pan. Add pepper, onions, garlic curls, salt, pepper, and oregano and mix. Add slightly less than 1 cup of water to the pan and scrape anything from the bottom of the pan. Cover tightly with a lid and continue cooking about 10 minutes. Serve over pasta.
We also had salad, since we have a lot of lettuce. We used romaine lettuce, mixed greens, a carrot, a couple of stalks of celery, and lemon tahini dressing that we bought at the farm market last week.
We still have a lot of lettuce. I'm not entirely sure what we are going to do with all this lettuce, but I'm going to make a genuine effort! My friend is also sending me a recipe for the escarole, which should be excellent. The Potomac Vegetable Farms web site has a recipe for garlic curl pesto, so I think I might make some of that, too.
I am fairly certain I am going to make some lasagna or something similarly Italian-ish :) Maybe a veggie lasagna.
