Not only is this #MeatlessMonday dish super good, it’s super healthy.  My Heirloom Tomato & Spaghetti Squash Lasagna highlights fresh, seasonal ingredients while still packing a very flavorful punch.  The mixture of the heirloom tomatoes and fresh mozzarella just cannot be beat, and on top of that, sweet corn mixes with serrano pepper for the perfect mix of sweet and spicy (that you know I always, always love).  And it tastes even better the next day!

With all of the peppers and herbs straight from my garden, I’m able to savor the flavors of summer in a healthy way.  I’ve found that using homegrown and organic ingredients really does make all of the difference in a dish, along with that satisfaction that you grew it yourself.  I’ll be planting some Cherokee Purple Tomatoes soon as well; I’m hooked from this recipe alone.  

I recently learned about Seeds of Change‘s Save the Flavors campaign that aims to raise awareness for the Cherokee Purple Tomato in an effort to make these flavorful little guys more available for everyone in the community to enjoy.  Every year, more and more fruit and vegetable varieties disappear, along with their distinctly different and delicious flavors. And Seeds of Change encourages us to change that, and even offers free Cherokee Purple Tomato seeds to plant yourself to save the flavor.  We love the entire idea of this campaign, and we’re 110% game to help spread the word one delicious recipe at a time.  Truly, MKR

Well our friends at Homespun have done it again; all of our mouths are watering, and we’re looking forward to the next time we can fire up the skillet for these delicious Roasted Summer Sausages.  Once you taste this dish, with its shallots, garlic and a red wine grape mustard that’s seriously the most amazing thing ever, you’ll immediately see where we’re coming from too. 

And lest we forget about the delectable Heirloom Tomato Au Gratin on the table! I’ve always thought heirloom tomatoes just scream summer, and I think they’re just as yummy as they are beautiful. While I prefer to use Cherokee Purple Tomatoes or even Yellow Brandywine Tomatoes in vibrant dishes like this, any will work great.  

Check out Chef Jason’s recipes below for the makings of a wonderful Kinfolk-esque meal that should happen on a long farm table under string lights.  Enjoy! Cheers, Kat
