St. Patrick's Day Recipes Pacific Foods

 

 

At Pacific, we’ve always loved being green. But this time of year, we thought it fitting to give a nod to more than our shades of sustainability. In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, here are a few recipes that celebrate Irish American culture. May they bring you the luck of the Irish, or at the very least, the fortune of a happy belly.
