Sometimes my lack of organisation is a good thing, or so I tell myself. Faced with the scant remains of last week’s shop, I had to cook something the kids would eat. Regular readers will know I’m blessed with one picky child and one good eater. I always have frozen bolognese for the tricky guy, but I don’t think it’s fair to my good eater to make him eat the same restricted diet.What to make out of those sad-sack ingredients that cooks while the spag bol is defrosting What if I turned 2-minute noodles into a creamy, cheesy pasta-style dish?My gluggy bland concoction left a lot to be desired but then Food Editor Claire her hands on the idea, adding peas for goodness lemon for brightness, and the right…

Start ’em young I’m not sure what age your average reader is, but my five-year-old loves your magazine.
