30 Minute Garlic Butter Pasta with Herbed Pork Bolognese.
So here’s how we’re doing rhubarb this Spring.
Roasted in a skillet, with tons of strawberries, some vanilla and topped with maybe the bestest honey butter biscuits ever. All served with whipped cream (or ice cream) and more warm honey butter for drizzling.
I mean, YESSSS.
Nothing super fancy, but does it really need to be? NOPE.
So let me tell you guys something. Finding rhubarb where I live is the not the easiest of tasks. I’ve basically been calling Whole Foods every day for the last month and half looking for rhubarb. I actually call Whole Foods so much that the produce guys totally knows its me when I call in. The last time I called, I of course asked for rhubarb and he said, “I don’t have rhubarb, but I do have edible flowers today”. That was when I knew for sure, that I call there WAY too much.
I’m either looking for edible flowers, or other odd somewhat in season produce that most larger areas have, but my smallish Whole Food’s doesn’t. I am talking about rhubarb, heirloom tomatoes, passion fruit, figs, blood oranges, etc., etc. So I just keep calling and calling until finally they get whatever it is that I’m looking for in, and then I pretty much jump for joy!
Funny thing is when they finally got rhubarb in, my dad just happened to be shopping there and called me immediately to tell me the good news….and then I jumped for joy…for like a second…and then I asked, “wait, do they have the green tops on them? They have to have the green leafy tops”. Of course, they didn’t, but I kind of had to be happy they at least had them in, and take what I could get.
Other funny part, I don’t even LOVE rhubarb. I mean, I obviously enjoy it, but only with other things…strawberries, raspberries, apples, you get the idea. It’s just that it’s spring and I have to bake with rhubarb at least once, you know?!?
OKAY, so here’s the deal.
This is one of those simple recipes that you can serve for either brunch or dessert. In my house it’s brunch all the way, because we pretty much only do chocolate for dessert, but that’s just us. Really though this can and should be eaten whenever the heck you feel like it.
It’s kind of freaking amazing, like sooo dang good. It’s also sooo dang easy to throw together at any given moment. Well as long as you have rhubarb, but even if you don’t, you could always double up on the berries or use apples, peach, or maybe even frozen rhubarb? Whatever fruits you can find will still be delicious.
I do really, really love this combo of strawberry and rhubarb. I guess it’s a classic for a reason, huh?
Truth is though, this recipe would be nothing without those biscuits. Of course, you NEED the fruit, but you NEED the biscuits just as much.
Trust me on this. The biscuits are perfect for soaking up all the yummy juices that come from roasting fruit. Plus the butter, carbs and honey… need I say more?
Didn’t think so.
So what are we thinking here? Friday night dessert? Saturday brunch? Sunday lunch?!?
Weekend plans = MADE. 🙂

Off to bake some more Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler… weekends, you’re the best!
Can you make this with frozen rhubarb? If so, does it change the prep? Thank you 🙂
Sure, you can follow the recipe as written with the frozen rhubarb as long as it is diced. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love the recipe! xx
Do you think I could freeze this before baking? I have a bunch of rhubarb and want to make some extra to pull out and bake later!
Totally, I think that would be just fine for you to do! Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx
Hey there! Thinking of making this today…. But I don’t have buttermilk. Any recommendations?
Whole milk should work well for you. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx
Could this recipe be used for a strawberry rhubarb pie filling?
Sure, I don’t see why not! Let me know how it turns out:) xTieghan

Incredible!! Not too sweet, and so tasty! In Québec, Canada, we are lucky to have rhubarb everywhere 🙂 How should we store leftovers?
Awesome! I am so glad this recipe was enjoyed and I really appreciate you giving it a try! You can store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge. Have the best week:) xTieghan
