PAPPARDELLE AND PESTO MEATBALLS
A fresh spin on traditional spaghetti and meatballs. Pappardelle (pronounced; Pop a dell a) noodles although egg based, are mostly very light, but this will depend on the brand you can find. My favorites are Rustichella D’arbruzzo or DeCecco. This recipe is a wonderful combination of flavors. For a complete meal I accompanied this dish with a Citrus Salad with Orange Chev Vinaigrette (recipe included with purchase upon request) and crusty bread. Great for a family style dinner – that kids will love, or sophisticated enough to serve at your next dinner party.

All the components make this recipe seem complicated, but the preparation is very easy and does not take a lot of time. For a super short-cut, you could buy ready-made pesto. Bon Appetito!

Remove from heat and strain water from the pot, leaving about 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in the pot. Do not return to heat.

Basil Pesto
* I am a non-pine-nut person. If you prefer them in your pesto, simply add them to the recipe. Recipe can easily be cut in half.

Ingredients:
2 – cups fresh basil leaves, packed
2 – cups shredded parmesan cheese
3 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – teaspoon salt

BUFFALO BEANS
Recently, a customer (thank you Suzanne) sent me a recipe for cowboy beans. It was a recipe that I was very familiar with as a kid – which we called “Hamburger Beans”. It was often dinner, or served as a side dish during outdoor cookouts. I took her suggestions, along with notes from my mother’s recipe from years back and came up with Buffalo Beans. It’s good-ole-fashioned, stick to your ribs food. A good hunger remover after a big day. Approved by Wild Idea’s Harvest Crew!

Ingredients:

1 – pound Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – onions, chopped
4 – cloves garlic, chopped
2 – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – tablespoon cumin
2 – teaspoons coriander
2 – teaspoons chili powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
½ – teaspoon smoked paprika
1 – 8 ounce can roasted and chopped green chilies
1 – cup ketchup
¼ – cup mustard
½ – cup maple syrup
½ – cup strong coffee
2 – cans beans, rinsed
Green onions or shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy pot over medium high heat, heat oil and crumble in ground buffalo meat and add the onions, garlic and dry seasonings. Push the meat around in the pan breaking up the meat pieces and incorporating the spices. Cook until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes.
2 – Add the remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer until desired consistency is reached.
3 – Garnish the beans with green onions or cheddar cheese and accompany with corn bread.
