Blue Apron... You Let Me Down!

Remember when I was talking about the awesome chicken meatballs I made earlier this week from Blue Apron? 

Yeah, those were great! They really set the tone for this Blue Apron box that I didn't initially want. 

I was excited to try the Green Garlic Pesto Pasta with Butter Lettuce Salad and Creamy Lemon Dressing. Before I started cooking, I remembered that I got an email from Blue Apron a day or two before receiving the box saying that they would be sending me garlic chives in place of the green garlic. They said in the email that because they "source fresh, seasonal ingredients from our community of artisans and suppliers, we had to make some adjustments this week," and apparently the green chives could be cooked very similarly to the green garlic.

I like chives, but I definitely like garlic more!!!!

The directions were easy to follow once again and everything was super fresh.

The end result was... Blah. 

I was disappointed. 

John took it for lunch the next day and texted me saying "Sorry babe.. lunch wasn't my favorite."

The picture on the recipe card looks so good and I know I followed the directions correctly. 

Every part of the dish just seemed like it was missing something.


Overall, there was nothing BAD about the dish. The dressing for the salad was nice and tangy... I did enjoy that. I think I was just super disappointed in what looked like it was going to be an awesome pasta.

Oh well... they all can't be winners!
