Weekly Kitchen Menu

Each week we bring a number of flavored noodles, plain noodles, hand-made ravioli, sauces, pestos, and prepared foods.  We update this menu each week, so look for what is coming to your local market this weekend.

November 8-9, 2014

Plain Noodle Varieties ($5/10oz. Box) serves 2 people

Winter Wheat & Oat,  Whole Spelt & Oat

Flavored Noodle Varieties

Green Garlic & Dill- Best served with seafood or roasted meats.  Can be tossed with a little olive oil or a light salsa fresca made with cherry tomatoes.

Lemon Verbena Pasta- A unique twist on lemon pepper pasta that you commonly find at many Italian markets, this pasta is made with chopped parsley and lemon verbena. It is an excellent side dish or a base to a seafood entree with a Thai flair.

Hand Made Ravioli  ($7/box of 18 vegetarian ravioli, $9/box of 18 meat filled ravioli) serves 2 people

Eggplant Ravioli- Made with locally grown eggplant, ricotta and a touch of sage.  Can be served with a tomato sauce or just a little bit of olive oil. Very bold taste.

Mixed Greens Ravioli- Classic Italian ravioli made with a blend of kale, mustard greens and tat soi finely chopped and blended with ricotta from Keswick Creamery. This is Nancy’s favorite flavor. These are the most versatile ravioli Smith Meadows makes. They can be served with any sauce or on their own.

Home Cooked Sauces (prices vary)

Bolognese Meat Sauce- A classic Italian sauce made with our ground beef, Italian sausage, allspice, bay leaf and burgundy wine.  It goes very well with all of our plain flavors, but is best with Spelt & Oat. ($7/ 16 oz. tub)

Neapolitan Marinara- A classic from Napoli made with toasted garlic and oregano, this can top your pizza, your pasta, or serve as base for vegetarian lasagna. ($6/ 16 oz. tub)

Other Prepared Foods (prices vary)

Tuscan Bean Soup- Made with our sweet Italian sausage, slow cooked with white beans, tomatoes, garlic, white wine and kale in a rich chicken broth. ($6 for 16oz tub)

Chili Verde- Nancy’s favorite from the kitchen. Made with roasted organic tomatillos from local farms and Smith Meadows Ground Pork with a little bit of cilantro, it is the tastiest chili in town. ($8 for 16oz tub)

Coriander Carrot Soup- A creamy soup (WITHOUT CREAM) spiced with coriander, sage, cumin, chili, and black pepper. Light, but also filling. A perfect savory combination of spices that brings carrot back from the edge of too sweet! ($6 for 16oz tub)

Mixed Greens Empanadas- Garlicky blend of kale, swiss chard, mustard greens and creamy ricotta cheese go together perfectly in these empanadas. Made with a vegetarian butter crust. ($8/ box of 3)

Jamaican Beef Empanadas- Made with a Jamaican curry blend, our ground beef and a lard based dough, they are hard to resist.  ($8/ box of 3)

Sausage Empanadas- Made our habanero spicy sausage and a blend of carrots, celery & onions in a lard based dough, they are even harder to resist than the beef empanadas. ($8/ box of 3)

Turkey Pot Pie- A savory, flaky pie for two stuffed with our turkey and a creamy medley of peas, carrots, celery and onions seasoned with sage and nutmeg in a rich white wine gravy. Delicious!  ($14/pie)

Shepherd’s Pot Pie- A rich lamb and beef stew made with our ground lamb, beef, porcini mushrooms, carrots, celery, peas, potatoes and tomatoes in a rich red wine gravy wrapped in our signature flaky crust.  ($14/pie)
