It's National Farmers' Market Week, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our favorite farmers than with a recipe contest highlighting one of summer's unsung heroes: the eggplant. While the eggplant's history can be traced back to modern day Burma, it's often associated with Mediterranean food and its creamy texture pairs incredibly well with toothy pastas (like in our Grilled Pasta alla Norma recipe last week). How do you eggplant?
It's easy to participate in our contest. All you need is some pasta (preferably Semolina Artisanal Pasta) and your favorite variety of eggplant and you're on your way! Tag @SemolinaArtisanalPasta in a photo of your favorite pasta/eggplant dish on Instagram with the hashtag #ihearteggplant between now and Monday, August 15th and you'll earn a chance to win a three-pack of Semolina Artisanal Pasta! We'd love it if you tagged your favorite farmer or farmers' market, too!
