Honey Tips

How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Preheat oven to 450°. Place all vegetables and garlic in a large pan and coat with olive oil. Bake for 40 minutes, until slightly charred. Cool. Remove skin, seeds and cores from peppers and tomatoes. Peel onions and garlic. Place vegetables in a large bowl. Add spices and honey and toss. Set aside. Cook pasta, drain, and toss with vegetables, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Serves 4.
