It is SO fun cooking with Wil’s daughter Charlotte and her sister Nora. They are so into it and its contagious. It’s impossible NOT to have fun!
This week’s menu:
- Homemade Pasta
- Homemade Marinara
- Panko Crusted Chicken
- Garlic Bread
First, Wil showed Charkey how to cut up the green pepper and then the onion.
Then Charlotte peeled all the garlic.
Then chopped it up.
She added the veggies to the pot along with some canned crushed tomatoes.
Then stirred it up.
And let it cook!
After that, it was time to take on the pasta.
She put 2 cups of flour plus 3 eggs onto the counter…
And then got to work!
Putting some muscle into it!
And then it was time to roll it out on the pasta machine with help from her dad.
Then she used a pizza cutter to slice the wide noodle up.
Meanwhile, Wil made the chicken by breading it in flour, egg, and seasoned panko and then browning it in a pan.
While Nora sliced up the bread.
She clearly hates having her picture taken… 😉
Then she brushed on some melted butter, garlic gold, and parmesan cheese.
And popped it in the oven until the cheese got melty and the bread toasty. By then the pasta was all cut up…
The sauce was ready to be blended…
I added some sausage crumbles to my sauce so I’d have some protein since I wasn’t eating the chicken.
And Nora assembled our salads and set the table…
SO fun and tasty!
Have you ever made pasta from scratch? I almost always used dried pasta but sometimes it’s fun to break out the pasta machine because fresh pasta tastes so good!
