ulaI did a cooking demo today at the Suffern Farmers’ Market and made a pasta sauce with ingredients from the market:

For 4 persons you need
4 ounces goat cheese

1 bunch of water cress, leaves only chopped
1 bunch of scallions, white and light green parts only, chopped
1 tbsp. vegetable or olive oil
salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste
1 lbs. cooked pasta like fusili or gemelli
2 cloves or garlic
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water, Heat sautee pan, add oil and sautee scallions and water cress until almost soft, add crumbled goat and pepper jack cheese and melt, add a little cooking water from the paste until a sauce forms that has the consistency of heavy cream, drain pasta when done, reserving a little bit of the cooking water and toss in sauce, adjust seasoning and serve immediately. Bon appetit.By the way, the cheese was from Laraia’s Cheese Shop in Nanuet and the vegetable from Do Re Mi Farms upstate New ork.
