I signed up for a CSA share for the first time ever this summer, and I'm so excited! Fresh, local, organic fruits and vegetables every week? Yes, please. With my first batch of veggies came garlic scapes, which I'd never had before. They're long, thin, curly, and beautiful. The taste is garlicky yet spicy/mustardy at the same time. Delicious. At the suggestion of my friend Jenny, I used them to make garlic scape pesto to top homemade gnocchi. Yum. I used a variation on Jenny's recipe, which can be found here. Dr. Joe pointed out that green pasta + green pesto + green plates was a little overkill. I guess I needed some green in my life!
