Pasta, Creamy Tomatoes & Sea Lavender

Sea Lavender is one of those seasonal Dutch products I love. Because it has a salty flavor and it is easy to use in recipe due to the texture of spinach. So when you are able to buy some sea lavender, please do so! It is a sustainable green, which you can use to replace spinach in a lot of recipes. Have fun cooking!
