Pasta is the perfect way to serve up your physically flawed produce
U.S. grocery retailers have rigorous aesthetic standards for the produce they sell in their stores, and the fruits and vegetables that don’t make the cut are usually discarded, despite being perfectly fit for consumption.
Fortunately, growing awareness of the world’s massive food waste problem has led to an ugly vegetable movement of sorts, and malformed, imperfect produce is increasingly being saved and sold at discounted prices. This year, Whole Foods and Wal-Mart both joined the ugly vegetable bandwagon, and many smaller grocery chains are also following suit.
Pasta is the perfect way to serve up your physically flawed produce. Best of all, you’ll end up with a meal that is good for you and good for the planet.
