This week the boys made Jamie Oliver’s Angry Pasta Fagioli from his latest book, Veg – releasing October 22nd in the US/ Canada. We’re cooking from the UK version (because, metric and also because I’m impatient and couldn’t wait an extra couple of months for release date here!).
It’s a fairly simple recipe but one with lots of jobs which, when you have 10 boys cooking is necessary!
Butternut squash, carrot, garlic and onions…
The veg got cooking (with a jalapeño – not the type of chili Jamie calls for but the only one I could find!)
After the veg has cooked a while, you add the garlic and onion…
A hearty, healthy bowl of goodness! I personally think it could have used some greens (and the boys felt it could have used Parmesan!) but all in all, a pretty GREAT dish to welcome Fall! Yes, your kids can make dinner for you!
Purchase Veg (called “Ultimate Veg” in the US/ Canada and out on October 22) for yourselves on Amazon (this link should bring you to the Amazon store closest to you). Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository.
