Thanks again to Fresh City Farms for providing me with the Recipe Bag, I was able to make this third and final fish dish of Broccoli & Tuna Macaroni Casserole with Thyme. As some of you might have seen in my first two blog posts about Fresh City Farms, they are a delivery service in Toronto which delivers fresh, organic, and locally sourced groceries to homes. You can order online and get their groceries delivered to your home and/or order their Recipe Bags which contain recipes for dishes containing meat, vegetables, and fish. I was really excited to try this third recipe out! I really enjoyed cooking and eating the first two. 🙂
The environmentally friendly tote bag contained all the ingredients and produce that I needed to make this dish. Included with the recipe bag were a stalk of fresh broccoli, organic brown rice penne, organic cheddar, unsalted barrel-churned butter, organic gluten-free flour, dried thyme, Ocean Wise Approved Albacore tuna, veggie bouillon cube, and one shallot.
Again, instructions were clear and so began the cooking! 🙂
The recipe was very simple. Within 25 minutes, this recipe can serve two! It’s good for lunch or dinner. 🙂
There was actually a lot more than two servings in my opinion. I couldn’t finish my plate of casserole in one sitting so I put the rest in the fridge and it was still really delicious a few days afterwards. 🙂
It’s a very simple casserole dish. The albacore tuna is not too seasoned; I’m not a huge, huge fan of tuna to begin with. The broccoli was very fresh. I really enjoyed the organic brown rice penne. I don’t think I’ve had organic brown rice penne specifically before actually. I liked how the penne was soft and soaked up the sauce well but was still firm to eat.
Out of the three recipes that I received, I liked the first one the most — Thai Purple Cabbage Bowl — since it was the most savory with unique organic black ramen. The Rustic Tuscan Sausage Stew was also extremely delicious and hearty; I adored that one as well. Perhaps if another fish like salmon was used with the penne and there was more cheese and flavour, I would have really liked this one as well.
Nevertheless, I really recommend you to try out Fresh City Farms because I really like how all their ingredients and produce are organic and locally grown. It’s really important to eat healthy and fresh foods. By eating food that is locally grown, you eliminate the risk of nutrition lost during the transportation process for food that is grown outside of Toronto and you are helping our local economy as well! The recipes are easy to prepare, fun to make, and delicious! It’s always good to try something new and new recipes are perfect for the upcoming autumn and winter season.
