Lamb (Or Chicken) And Mint Orrechiette

Blue Apron Lamb Orrechiette Pasta Dish

I mentioned last week that I've been werkin' on my cooking, and that Blue Apron was one of my "training" resources. I thought I'd share one of the recipes that I've been able to master and even modify, and now we eat it all the time. First of all, if you're not familiar with Blue Apron, it's one of several meal delivery options that's popped up on the interwebs in the past couple of years. Once a week we get a box with all of the ingredients, sorted into portions and labeled, to make 3 meals. We get the 2 person version, but they now have a family sized option. You get to input some of your dietary preferences and based on that they create your menus. For me, it is convenient, helps eliminate waste and saves me the headache of thinking of something new to cook. It's also pushed me to cook and eat things I would never have thought of otherwise. 

Now, on to the recipe: Lamb, Mint & Pea Orecchiette! The Blue Apron version of this calls for lamb, which is often paired with mint, but I'm not into lamb guys. So I substitute ground chicken or turkey, and I've found that both still taste delicious. I will say this, when using turkey they have a 99% fat free version and then one that's like, 93% fat free---use the 93% version. I promise that little bit of fat won't break you and you will get a far superior flavor. With Blue Apron you get the recipe card with your delivery, but the great thing is that you can find all of the recipes on their website's cookbook. That way you can try out any of the recipes on your own. The Orecchiette is great because it is simple, a few ingredients you can pick up at most grocery stores, and can be thrown together fairly quickly. I think it would be great as a vegetarian option as well! Click here for the recipe if you haven't already!

I have a few free meals to give away from Blue Apron-if you are interested in trying it or have any burning questions, shoot me an email at southernarrondissement@gmail.com!
