We’re so excited to begin the CSA season! We want to thank all of our returning members and welcome all of our new ones. If you’re new to our program, here are some things that you should know- If you ordered Honey we still need to spin it, it will be in the bags in the coming weeks. we include one recipe on this flyer, but we also have four more recipes on our website (front9farm.com/recipes) that use all of the produce in the share. We try to use minimal packaging so any leafy produce should be stored in plasticware or plastic bags to keep it humid. If you dont know how to store something ask us and we will be happy to help. We love seeing the food you make so if you ever share something on social media make sure to tag @front9farm.We have a great share to start the season. The leeks and beets have been grown throughout the winter and should taste nice and sweet, even if their exterior is rough. Thank you all for supporting us and our farm!

Spread 1/2 cup of the ricotta cheese mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with 6 lasagna noodles. Spread with 1/2 of the cabbage rapini mixture. Repeat layers, ending with a layer of cabbage rapini.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until lasagna is heated through and bubbly.
Let lasagna cool for 10 minutes before serving.
