Hi everyone, it’s me, Cece! It is February vacation week, so I got to go with my Mom and Auntie to their cooking class. It is called Cooking Matters. I got to help them make Roasted Vegetables with Pasta. https://cookingmatters.org/recipes/pasta-roasted-vegetables There were more people there cooking as well. Some of them chopped vegetables and let me scrape the veggies from the cutting board into the bowl. Then I measured some oil and salt and pepper to add in the bowl and I stirred it all up. Then I put it on a pan for it to go in the oven for a little while. I think we had 100 pounds of cauliflower!
While the vegetables were cooking in the oven, my Mom started making the pasta. It was those twisty ones, but Miss Whitney said you can use whatever kind you want. She said it’s important to use “whole grain” foods because they are healthier for you. The noodles were browner than the other kind, but they tasted so good!
While my group made pasta, the other group made Baked Flaked Chicken.
https://cookingmatters.org/recipes/baked-flaked-chicken It’s not really flaked; it’s made with corn flakes! I wish I had gotten to crush them up for the coating.
At the end, we all got to try everything. It was so so so good! I have never had all those vegetables in the pasta, like summer squash and mushrooms. I liked it so much, I asked my Mom to make it at home!
You should try these recipes at your home, too! If you do, let me know!
See you later,
