Rich & Lou Bear (Blog Cooking With Kids)
I thought I would start a cool little blog about cooking with my beautiful little daughter Talulah
She is 7 and likes cooking with daddy which is great and it’s a great way to spend quality time together.
Hopefully a budding chef in the making
For all you parents out there little recipes for you and the kids , quick recipes and you'll have fun as well !!!
Fusilli & Sunblushed Tomato Ragout
400g Dried Fusilli Pasta
300ml Tomato Pasata
1 clove Garlic
1/2 Red Onion Diced
1 sprig Rosemary
5 leaves Basil
Pinch Salt to taste
1 x Knor Veg Pot
100g Sunblushed Tomatos
Equipment – Saute Pan – Saucepan – Cooks Knive – Board – Wooden Spoon -Strainer
Fill a saucepan up with water and place on stove , the adult will have to light the stove ! And please
be careful of hot water. Bring water to simmer and then pop the pasta in . While this is cooking you can start on the ragout .
In the Saute pan add the oil , while this is slowly heating , dice the onions finely and garlic remember sharp knives so be careful of little ones fingers ! . Add the onions and garlic to the pan and sweat off slowly to get the flavour going . When tranlusent add the tomato Pasata and chopped basil and Rosemary . Stir together
When simmering add the veg stock pot and pinch of sugar , all the sugar does is counteract the sourness off the Tomatos ( Lula thought I was mad putting sugar in our dinner )
Next chop the basil and add in and stir until cooked , you can season to taste .
The pasta should be ready , pass through a strainer and add to the ragout .
Stir again and serve .
Serve in a bowl or plate maybe grate some Parmesan over the top
