Love for My CSA

We decided to sign up for a CSA (community supported agriculture) program this year and I have been very happy with our decision. The weekly supply of produce has certainly upped our veggie intake. It has also forced me outside of my canned green bean comfort zone. The above photo includes all of the veggies from this week's basket. Check out our farm:   If you are interested in finding your own CSA next year go to

I threw together a pasta salad using some of the above vegetables and my patio grown basil to go with our weekly steak/chicken combo. (This is a way to sneak more chicken into my diet since Mr. Moon looooves red meat)
Side note: my entire extended family has a soft spot for gnomes.

Ingredients: 2 cups cooked whole grain pasta, a hand full of shredded fresh basil, two medium tomatoes chopped, small chopped cucumber, Tbsp minced garlic, Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 c shredded mozzarella, kosher salt and ground pepper

Directions: Cook pasta according to package directions, add a dash of kosher salt to boiling pasta. Drain. Over low heat, add veggies, olive oil and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper. After a few minutes, once veggies are warm all the way through, remove from heat. Top each portion with mozzarella.
