I was putting Ross to bed a few nights ago…
Me: Ross, what was your favorite part of the day today?
Ross: Wata’ we do today?
Me: Well, we cleaned-up the playroom, got a cookie at Wal-Mart, cooked dinner and went swimming.
Ross: Uhhh… my favorite was cookin’ with Mama.
Ross and I LOVE to cook together! He gets the food we need, climbs up on the island and gets to work. He already knows the difference between vegetable and olive oil, which spices go best with chicken on the grill and how to make sweet tea. Yes… the really GOOD (and bad for you) Georgia-kind.
Anyways, we came up with a spaghetti dish with some ingredients we had on hand. We loved it, so, I thought I’d share…
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- sliced mushrooms
- fresh Rosemary
- 1 large can diced tomatoes
- 1 small package of spaghetti noodles
- olive oil, salt/pepper
- mozzarella cheese
- parmesan cheese
Cook noodles as directed. Heat veggies, garlic and rosemary in pan with olive oil. Add tomatoes. Mix noodles and sauce. Add mozzarella and parmesan cheese on top. Bake 30-45 minutes.
(When I have carrots and celery on hand, I add those to the vegetable mix as well.)
