So we have been recovering from our vacation and being back at work. Spending lots of time tending the garden, working on some art projects and of course eating some wonderful food that we brought back from Montreal, grew in the garden and sourced from some of our favorite local farmers....
This was a wonderful little dish we made using some fresh spinach and ricotta raviolis we bought from a pasta shop at the Marche Jean Talon as well as some diced figatelli sausage, rooftop garden chard, morel mushrooms, garlic scapes sauteed in a butter and white wine sauce.
Paired nicely with Groundwork Grenache Blanc.
Keeping the theme rolling with fresh made pasta from Montreal we comprised this dinner with fresh gnocchi, Frith Farm sweet sausage and sugar snaps, garden plot kale and red bell pepper that I salvaged from the shrink bucket at work.
