I whipped up some Leek, Mushroom & Potato Soup to keep them from starving while I did the only thing I could...grab some shrimp from the freezer, and saute them with a little pesto. I had bought the most gorgeous pasta, in the shape of leaves and multi colored - like Autumn. Some were made with spinach, others beets and even squid made its way into the mix, so there really was a lot of flavors going on. Lovely, tasty...but forget picture taking.
And, for the first time, Boaz, who generally loves pasta and especially because he's into eating all by himself, enjoys picking up little pastas like orecchetti, little shells and macaroni and, of course there is no more fun than waving fettucine and linguine around, so don't get too close.
sacchettini stuffed with potato & leeks. Perhaps it was the goat cheese I added. I'm not sure, but it was cast away - far away - like flung to the other side of the table!
Which made me think of my niece, who's a picky eater. I'm not sure what she's been eating since we've moved (it's six months now, hard to believe), but she basically ate grilled cheese sandwiches or spaghetti. Spaghetti in Katie's world meant spaghetti noodles - not linguine or fettucine - just spaghetti and a little margarine, no sauce, no cheese, no... nothing!
So I'm taking a poll...sort of. If you have children, know children or are/were a child, let me know your favorite "kid" pasta. Mine was spaghetti with meat sauce - and it still is!
