A big thank you to everyone who shared recipes in December’s Shop Local #4 challenge. This round up has eleven delicious recipes for your viewing pleasure, some of them from new-to-me bloggers; I hope you enjoy them! As usual, there is a linky at the bottom of this post for you to link up your own recipes using locally sourced ingredients. If you are new to this monthly blogging challenge you can read all about it here.
First off the mark is Shaheen over at Allotment 2 Kitchen with a really clever ruby red chard and feta pasta loaf. Shaheen picked up some gorgeous chard at a little Usk Farmer’s Market and included it in a dish vaguely resembling a macaroni cheese pie: a pasta dish baked in a pastry. Shaheen says this dish tastes even better the next day and is excellent served cold on picnics or in lunch boxes.
