Pasta with Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic Scapes are truly underrated. What’s a garlic scape? It’s a stalk that grows from the garlic bulb about a month prior to harvest. Their unique mild, sweet flavor has an unmistakable garlicky punch! These curly green stalks are only here for a short season so grab them before they are gone. This week our garlic scapes come from Jenine Empie in Schoharie, NY.

Green garlic is younger garlic that is collected before the cloves have started to mature. The veggie looks like a scallion, having a deep green stalk along with a pale white bulb. Aside from providing an extra flavor layer to your dish, green garlic can help boost immune system health as well as fight off gastro-intestinal infections!
