Yummy Recipe

Over the weekend I tried a new recipe. It is a "keeper" so I thought I would share it with you. The recipe comes from the February 2011 issue of Better Homes and Gardens (as does the photo).

I used grape tomatoes instead of the dried tomatoes. I also didn't splurge for fresh herbs so substituted dried Italian herbs. The first night we had it for dinner was right after I made it and it was warm. Yum! It made enough that we could have it for dinner the next night too. I think it was just as good cold, maybe even better. My son thought the minced garlic was a bit spicy the first night, but the garlic mellowed a bit in the refrigerator and he pronounced it yummy the second night. He even asked to take the left over to school for lunch. So this recipe gets 5 stars from me and will definitely go into our dinner rotation.

Disclaimer: My son does not have the usual "kid tastes" in food. He is a very adventurous eater and loves to try new things. So just because he likes it doesn't mean the average kid will. Please don't write to me and ask me how I trained him not to be a picky eater. I didn't and I have no idea why he's not. I'm just thankful not to have to fight the "food battle" with my child.

Good looking recipe. I imagined you trained him without trying: Here is food. Give it a try.

Most picky eaters I know come from a house where one or both parents are picky.

Thanks for sharing.
