From Jerry:

Not going to lie, I’m spoiled. Growing up in Sacramento, California, I am surrounded by the best produce in the world. It has made being a vegetarian for the past 35 years hella easy. California grows over 1/3 of country’s veggies and 2/3 of the fruits and nuts. Trust me when I say this, you ain’t had a tomato until you had a California tomato. #sorrynotsorry.

One of the many reasons I advocate for farmers: They feed America. We must build a future that rewards and celebrates that hard work. That’s why working together for the promise of a sustainable planet is key. The future of food is at risk.

That’s why I focus on vegan and vegetarian cuisine, like this hearty and indulgent Lemon Garlic Butter Pasta with Olives dish. Eating plant-forward doesn’t mean you have to compromise on flavor or heartiness. And what better way to celebrate the GOAT state when it comes to ag than a fresh seasonal pasta highlighting the bounty of California.
