Canola Pasta

It's late March, and time for spring. But, we had heavy snow last week, so I think it'll take a little more time for spring to arrive to Misawa. The cherry blossoms, or sakura, usually come to Misawa in late April. Before the cherry blossom or at the same time of the cherry blossom season, you could see the canola flower field around here. They are yellow flower so that covered the field by yellow. It is a very beautiful sight in spring. Usually, we take oil from the canola flower. But, we can also eat it as you would spinach. Boiled canola flower is the one of the good way to eat with soy sauce. Today, I introduce canola Pasta. It is good and you could feel the spring with green canola flower.

Ingredients: (For 2-3 people)
・a bunch of canola flower
