The kids enjoyed a delicious lunch of homemade pasta this week. As always, they helped make it and if you’d like to try this at home with your kids, here’s the recipe. The lines in italics are for grown-ups only.
2 stalks of celery
A packet of cherry tomatoes
A clove of garlic
A handful of basil
A can of beans – roman, cranberry, kidney or chickpeas
Store-bought sheets of fresh pasta
Chop up the celery, carrots, tomatoes and basil.
Place these in a pot and start to cook them. Add the beans and basil as the sauce begins to boil. We used red beans.
Slice the pasta sheets into shapes of your choice.
Add the pasta to the sauce and let it cook for three minutes.
