For a quick and easy summertime meal, try Monterey Farms Grilled ArtiHearts in this vegetarian pasta dish. They are almost meaty and will please even the carnivores at the table. Tarragon and snap peas add elegance to the dish.

Sweet almonds, charred red peppers and aromatic Hungarian paprika blend into a sumptuous sauce ladled over fresh pasta and topped with crispy sautéed eggplant. Serve this with a simple mix of greens, a drizzle of olive oil and a rustic loaf of bread.
