When my son craved pasta and used his puppy looks on me, I had to oblige. So I chopped onions, garlic, red bell peppers, celery sticks, carrots and tomatoes. I boiled it all together and pureed them with a hand blender. When that cooled down a little, I used the puree along with whole wheat flour, semolina, salt and black pepper to make a dough. After letting the dough wait for half and hour, I rolled it flat, cut it in strips and there, fresh pasta that comes with the veggies built-in.
Well, my son loved it and so I had another successful mommy moment. Yay!
