It’s lovely to have the opportunity to cook food that is simple and driven by vegetables rather trying to prepare elaborate dishes from cookbooks about cuisines from places most of have never experienced.
Ramps are really wonderful, for example: At about $20 a pound, you need to have a plan for using these babies. I bought three bunches ($12) and planned three meals around them. Last night was a tomato sauce flavored with half a red onion and good olive oil and at the end I threw in a chopped up single bunch of ramps and tossed with parmigiano and black pepper. Add bigoli and keep stirring.
