In a heavy pot, cook the pasta in a large amount of salted water until just al dente (about 10 minutes). Drain and set aside.

Place the pot back on the stove over medium heat. Pour in the olive oil and heat it until the surface begins to move. Stir in the garlic, shallots and sweet peppers and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the peppers are crisp-tender. Add the greens and walnuts and cook for 1 minute more.

Stir in the warm pasta, the basil, the cheeses and the stock to make a creamy sauce around the pasta. Cook, stirring, to heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with grated Parmesan and sprigs of fresh basil.

I was wondering why your recipes do not include nutrition information?

Thank you

Nutrition information on recipes

We are looking into software that will allow us to have nutrition information not only for our recipes but also all of our deli prepared foods. We've had difficulty with off the shelf software as it does not recognize many of our name brand ingredients and/or condiments, such as special oils, veganaise and more.

We are aware that this is a missing and integral part of our offering. We hope to have something soon.

swee peppers

Hi - just wanted to ask why sweet peppers are included in this "seasonal" recipe? I'm well aware that sweet peppers are growing somewhere in the world all of the time but to include sweet peppers in one's diet in March in the Pacific NW is to also include a large amount of fossil fuel usage and is in fact to be eating this particular food out of season. Sweet peppers will be in season in our neck of the woods usually from the end of July to late October. The current PCC advertisement also includes a "seasonal" recipe that calls for sweet peppers. The usage of these out-of-season ingredients in so-called "seasonal" recipes casts a shadow of doubt on PCC's commitment to "Local, Seasonal, Organic" food. Just curious why these are being used?

Sweet Peppers

Hi, I’m the chef who designed this recipe. Thank you so much for your interest and comments! You are so very right about the sweet peppers. I am completely guilty of falling victim to my artistic side. Originally the recipe just utilized the fabulous variety of greens and wonderful local shallots available at that wintery season. However, since I developed this recipe for our television segment on Gardening with Ciscoe, (as I was touring our glorious produce department the morning before the shoot,) I fell in love with the look the peppers splashed for the camera! I will revise the name of the recipe and also include some further information on the timing of the seasonal variations mentioned at the end of the recipe. Have a wonderful day! Lynne Vea
