Carole’s Concoctions:
The Perfect Pasta

Surprise guest blogger! Erin here--Heirloom Meals's summer intern, and I have the best job in the world: sampling Carole's cooking. One of her most recent concoctions was this Roasted Chicken and Vegetable Pasta.

Simply fabulous. One thing about Carole that never ceases to amaze me is her ability to go into the kitchen, rummage through the weekly farm share, and emerge with a truly delicious dinner. For this particular dish, Carole had an overabundance of Swiss chard from her garden. She added chicken, onion, basil, and other spices to gluten-free pasta. (I can't taste the difference.) Topped with a little parmesan cheese, it made my night. It is the perfect pasta; healthy, easy, and you can substitute any vegetables you like. It was light and fresh, but filling. Make it yourself, here. Your family, guests, and summer interns will love it!
