Life since the New Year has been all about food! Ever growing kids means finding interesting things to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
This was dinner tonight. Made in about 15 minutes, eaten in under 5 and enjoyed by all.
On the menu:
Pasta with Pork/Spinach/Pesto/Sour Cream delight
Boiled Broccoli (plain, no butter or salt)
3/4 cup pulled pork (I have done it with tofu and seasoned chicken)
approximately 3 cups fresh spinach
8 greek olives (optional)
2 tsp sour cream
1 1/2 tsp pesto
sprinkling of finely grated pecorino romano cheese (or any kind of grated cheese)
Fry up the protein with a little olive oil (medium to low heat), stir in spinach and cover pot to let the spinach cook. Add pesto, sour cream and olives (optional, my girls like olives). Turn down to low heat and cook until spinach is completely cooked. If anything sticks to the pot by this stage it should be pretty moist and the pot should come clean. If it looks too dry add a tiny bit of water. After about 5 minutes turn the heat off and let stand until ready. Meanwhile cook the pasta and broccoli. These amounts serve three small kids and one adult!
Enjoy! Oh… if your kids don’t like it then it’s a quick meal for you. Yum!
