pasta with mushrooms (adapted from Donna Hay)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 orange pepper chopped
1 box of sliced mushrooms, such as field, shiitake or button
3/4 cup vegetable broth
3/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped baby spinach (I had no basil)
a dash of black pepper
Add oil to skillet and heat. Add olive oil, bell pepper and mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes until mushrooms are browning.
Add the broth, sour cream and lemon juice and simmer for 5 minutes.

Drain. Toss the pasta with the mushroom sauce, Parmesan, pepper and salt.

That week, we concentrated on carrots. I like to check out our vegetable, not only for health benefits, but also for the names of their sisters. Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill. I didn't have a clue about many of these. I, have never seen carrots of other colors or at least, if I had, I didn't know, they were carrots. I am going to a good produce store, looking for purple or red carrots, to start my search. It is fun, shopping when purposely looking for new vegetables. I have definitely expanded my horizons. When, I was thinking about what to make with carrots, I
