Garlic Scapes?

Our Local Door-To-Door Organics box this week contained garlic scapes.  See them green curly things below?  Those would be the scapes...never seen these things before...so naturally I had to have them and I had to make an amazing dish with them.

Veggie Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Lime Sauce from OhSheGlows

The leaf lettuce in the box was amazingly fresh.  We wrapped the veggies and peanut sauce with the leaves.  This sauce pulls this dish together nicely, making it fresh, crunchy and tasty.
Sadly, none of the other meals this week stood up the the amazingness of the lettuce wraps.

Immitation Crab Roll with Wasabi Mayo

Instead of shrimp for these sandwiches, I used imitation crab.  The wasabi didn't quite compliment the crab.
 Forgot to take a photo before eating...guess during is an ok substitute.

Summer Ratatouille from OhSheGlows

Here is another dish that brought a bit of disappointment as well.  I was really looking forward to eating the veggies with couscous..but we were out  :(   Quinoa and a TON of cheese was the substitute..haha
It did taste quite good at lunch today though  :)  With a ton of parmesan..hahah

Garlic Scape Pesto from RunningToTheKitchen

And finally, the biggest disappointment .. my garlic scapes' dish..
One would think you can't go wrong with soba noodles, ricotta and paremesan.  Sadly, this wasn't as good as I thought it should be...and I ended up tripling the recipe since Josh usually inhales these noodles.  At least it is edible.  Maybe the flavors will meld and it will taste good in lunches the rest of the week  : /

An addition of mushrooms and some other spice would have made this pasta dish better.
