What's for Dinner?

The school runs "clubs". These clubs run over lunchtime breaks and after school. The lunchtime clubs are ideal when it is Winter, and too cold to play outside. In summer lots of sport activities outside and other clubs. Since we have been here, the boys have been involved in storytime, cricket, football (soccer), playground games, board games and others I cannot think of at the moment. This term they are both in cooking club. Last week they made a pasta dish, and we decided to make it together last night! YUM

Here is the recipe for anyone interested....it is a nice quick meal to make, and really delicious. Next time, I think I will chop up some sun dried tomatoes as well!
