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

Olive oil

1/2 Red Onion Diced

1 sprig Rosemary

5 leaves Basil

Pinch Sugar

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
