Thank you, FarmToFork™ Pasta Sauces, for sponsoring this post!
We’re well into fall now and I’ve been happily eating my way through the cozy comforting foods of this flavorful season. You? Yep, I thought so. That’s why I’m excited to share with you another hearty fall harvest dish for dinner time in partnership with FarmToFork, a new brand of quality jarred pasta sauces. I recently discovered their delicious, thoughtfully crafted red sauces, which pack simple, premium ingredients like sustainably grown tomatoes and fresh garlic, basil and onions in every jar.
While summer may be known as the season for fresh local produce and abundance at the farmers market, I always get v. excited for fall harvest offerings like winter squashes and pumpkins, apples and pears, and hearty winter greens like kale. For this dish I reached for beautiful shiny baby eggplant, which when roasted, delivers a delicious, savory umami flavor. Eggplant pairs naturally with tomato-based sauces, and the robust flavor combination of sweet caramelized onions, roasted garlic, fresh basil and spices in the FarmToFork Caramelized Onion & Roasted Garlic Sauce really make this dish sing. Roasted baby eggplants are stuffed with a mixture of homemade tofu ricotta and local lancinato kale, then topped with FarmToFork sauce and finished with a crispy herb prangitata. I wanted to show off the hearty flavors of fall, while still keeping it relatively simple with the help of a premium, high-quality jarred pasta sauce. This dish has the comforting taste of lasagna crossed with eggplant parm. Do I have your attention yet? Serve it with a slice of crusty bread to sop up all of that delicious sauce.
I’m so happy to be partnering with a brand like FarmToFork, who understands the value of connecting communities to where their food comes from. In fact, they source all of their tomatoes from two multi-generational family farms in California: Casaca Vineyards and Worth Farms. As a consumer who religiously reads labels and tries to make sustainable shopping choices, I think it’s wonderful that FarmToFork works with farmers who are committed to good ingredients, good growing practices and good impact on their local communities.
Pick up a jar of any of FarmToFork’s four delicious varieties on your next trip to the grocery store. Head over to FarmToFork to discover more fall harvest recipe inspiration and to find their sauces at a store near you.
