So the consensus was that the pasta and bread were delicious. The kids ate every bite, quite the accomplishment as someone always hates something I make for dinner. I served the pasta with oregano, broccoli, sea salt, a little butter, olive oil and fresh Parmesan.
Not a stunningly beautiful meal, but healthy, hearty and homemade. Interestingly, the kids seem to prefer the whole wheat bread over the white bread I have been making, seems never buying white bread from the store has trained their palettes :)
I am hoping that when we get to spring and the produce is coming in, we will get involved in some of the Eat Local challenges. This whole meal could have been local if in season, except for the cheese.
