Today is the day we launch Time is Ripe – inspiring all our fresh food fans to buy organic!
Each week we will be highlighting a different product and giving everyone who purchases it the chance to WIN a hamper filled with delicious organic goodies!
We are starting Time is Ripe with La Domenica Organic Pasta as the featured organic pasta of the week. Now, just how much difference can there really be between average supermarket pasta and organic pasta? Well, you may be surprised to know the answer.
Organic pasta is produced completely free from pesticides, fertilisers, and other unnatural hormones that can be harmful to you and your family. Organic pasta also provides more nutrients, fibre and has a natural wheat flavour. Something that most people haven’t given much thought to before is how many toxins and chemicals are used when growing wheat and grains used to make breads and pasta.
At Peaches we believe that the fresher the better, and we’ve found a delicious healthy recipe you can make using La Domenica Organic Penne Regati. All the ingredients in the recipe can be purchased at Peaches Fresh!
VEGETABLE GARDEN PASTA
200 grams of La Domenica Penne Regati
1 punnet of fresh cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
2 1/2 tbs of Golden Range Olive Oil
1 ear of corn
1 zucchini (chopped)
1/2 capsicum (chopped)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Start by heating up the olive oil in a pan. Cook the garlic clove and tomatoes until they soften. Put all the other vegetables in a separate pan and sauté for about 10 minutes. Once everything is ready, combine in one pan. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper, stir through some fresh basil and serve. Couldn’t be more simple and healthy!
