I am a big believer in buying local produce whenever I can and I love that the relatively short Ontario outdoor growing season is extended by the addition of Ontario-grown greenhouse vegetables.
Ontario greenhouse grown cucumbers are available year round, and peppers and tomatoes are available from February to December. That of course means that it’s easier than ever to buy produce that’s grown close to home throughout the year.

Spaghetti with Roasted Tomato Sauce
Now about this spaghetti! This vegetable-rich pasta dish features Ontario Greenhouse Grown Red Peppers, cherry tomatoes, onions and fresh arugula. The sauce for this pasta is made first quick roasting the red peppers, then simmering them together. They are then pureed and tossed with the hot pasta. Enjoy this one as a meatless, vegetarian meal or you also have the option of adding in some prosciutto, bacon or sausage, for extra flavour and heartiness.
I used prosciutto here, with a bit pureed into the sauce and also used for garnish.
