Garlic and Lemon Pasta

Serves 4 
  • 1 lb spaghetti or zucchini noodles
  • 1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth (could use vegetable)
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup Greensted Zesty Mix Microgreens
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley


  1. Cook spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Or prepare your zucchini noodles.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat oil and butter over medium-low heat.
  3. Stir in garlic, lemon peel, lemon juice, broth, basil, salt, and pepper and raise heat to medium-high.
  4. Bring to gentle simmer, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.
  5. Drain pasta, return it to its cooking pot and immediately pour the heated sauce over it, along with the Zesty Mix and parsley.
  6. Gently toss that pasta and sauce together. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl, and garnish with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  7. Let cool for 1-2 minutes in the pan. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Around the farm this week

Coming to the end of two weeks of short staffing. It’s been a challenge! We will be fully staffed next week. Unfortunately no new garden photos this week. Dean did bring in the first red cherry tomato. Jayne ate it. Sorry. Not sorry. Maters coming soon! Cucumbers will hopefully be in shares next week.
