One of our popular extra items is the weekly pasta subscription, and for good reason. Flour City Pasta takes about 5 minutes to hit al-dente, making it a lifesaver on busy days. Add in some kale and white beans, a little seasoning, and a healthy sprinkle of cheese and you’ve got yourself a rather fancy weeknight after work/before practice/night class. The white beans make this vegetarian meal plenty filling. Hint: make extra and have a fancy lunch tomorrow.
