Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

From the Test Kitchen

Summer is the season of the tomato. Let’s celebrate it with fettuccine “al pomodoro,” or pasta coated lightly in a classic, simple tomato sauce—made fresh in only minutes. Our sauce features two varieties of tomato: the beefsteak, robust in both form and flavor, and the multicolored cherry, petite and deliciously fruity (not to mention beautifully hued). With garlic, basil and two kinds of cheese, this dish is seasonal, traditional Italian fare at its finest.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Peel the garlic; thinly slice 3 of the cloves. Finely chop the remaining clove; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Medium dice the beefsteak tomatoes. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Tear the mozzarella cheese into bite-sized pieces. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves.

Make the dressing:
2 Make the dressing:

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, half the Parmesan cheese, as much of the garlic paste as you’d like and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges. Stir to thoroughly combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the tomato sauce:
3 Make the tomato sauce:

In a large, straight-sided pan (or large pot), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the beefsteak tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 12 minutes, or until the tomatoes are thickened and saucy.

Cook the pasta:
4 Cook the pasta:

While the tomato sauce cooks, using your hands, gently separate the pasta. Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Finish the pasta:
5 Finish the pasta:

To the pan of tomato sauce, add the cooked pasta, cherry tomatoes, remaining Parmesan cheese, ¾ of both the mozzarella cheese and basil (tearing the leaves just before adding) and half the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently to coat the pasta, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish.

Make the salad & serve your dish:
6 Make the salad & serve your dish:

In a large bowl, combine the lettuce and as much of the dressing as you'd like (you may have extra dressing). Toss to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish. Garnish the finished pasta with the remaining mozzarella cheese and basil (tearing the leaves just before adding). Serve with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
