Sughetto di Pomodoro alle verdurine
Who said, cheating or lying is not good or should not be done…….well in my case, I do and I am proud of it as it is gives me great pleasure in knowing that my Creations from cheating help me feed my kids amazing meals with all the nutrients they need without fuss or silly tantrums………As most parents always find themselves fighting through the most frustrating dinner experiences with their kids because of lack of appetite!! or don’t like this!!!, it is too hot!!!! i do not like green bits, it smells funny, my friends eat chicken nuggets every night, why do i need to eat a bowl of pasta!!! why do need to eat fish, well let me tell you, being a chef has its advantages and I use my skills to, as i said, Cheat my way into their tummies.
My wife is very regimental and well organized in planning meals that cover the entire food chart because she cares, she loves them and because they need to grow healthy and strong……what can you say to that!!!!!!!!
well this a recipe that I have created to encompass a well balanced dish with lot’s of good things without them knowing and trust me Adults will love it more than the little rug rats
