Magic Marinara – Tuesday, July 10, 5:30-7:00 p.m., $10
Instructor Dawn Manke has a magnificent recipe that she describes as “so simple and versatile it’s genius!”  Roasting seasonal vegetables right out of the garden, she will teach you to create some frugal and healthy variations on a basic marinara that is equally at home as a sauce for pasta or as a basis for chili or a yummy salsa verde. Class will include a light supper. 

Register through Friday, July 6 by calling Kat Daniel at Marion-Polk Food Share, 503-581-3855 extension 322.  Class limit: 10.
