Veggies, Pixies and Pasta

Image of Veggies, Pixies and Pasta
Whether you call it a raw and cooked veggie and fruit salad, a pasta dish, or a bowl, you’ll want to call this recipe very delicious. Much maligned broccoli’s more tender and sweeter cousin, baby broccoli, meets Ojai pixie tangerines and the sweet and savory game is forever changed. Yes, veggies and fruits go beautifully together in your favorite recipes, or maybe give this one a try.

Already steamed and seasonal fava beans, crunchy and colorful long sweet peppers, and my favorite fruit/veggie avocado combine with roasted baby broccoli and the very best of California citrus to create a mélange of textures and flavors. Serve over a bed of warm linguine, toss with a tasty tangerine-tahini dressing, garnish with toasted pine nuts and fresh basil. The results are a unique dish with a Mediterranean and California flair that I really hope you’ll enjoy.
