We love that pasta is such an easy food to incorporate into meals with other favorite foods, including fresh produce. When you add fresh fruits or veggies to a pasta meal, not only do you boost your nutrient intake, you can help support your local growers and farmers.
Our friends at MyPlate have recently launched a new program called MyPlate, MyState where you can find out the foods your state is famous for to easily add them to your meals. Each state also has recipes featuring these local foods that you can try.
Once you find your local foods, search our recipes page to find meals that feature those ingredients. By eating your locally grown specialties, you can show your hometown pride while eating a healthy meal.
You can show off your pasta meal featuring locally grown produce using the #MyPlateMyState on social media. For more information on the MyPlate, MyState program, click here.
