    Whats your secret?

    I'm making dinner for the family tonight (2 young kids so nothing spicy) and its Spaghetti Bolognaise (I know but its my speciality :roll:)

    But do you have any special ingredients or tips on making the best, kid friendly, spag bol?

    I know all you 'yummy mummies' will have an idea

    Oregano...OR Chilli...

    a lot of kids don't like onions so i always make mine without (i don't like them either :lol:)

    Stick in 2-4 tbsps of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce:thumbsup:

    Bacon bits and extra mushrooms, mmm....

    don';t forget the pile of cheese ontop at the end!

    Ahhh, tried that, they said it was yukkie, and the missus hated it

    Nothing to do with the recipe but if you put vaseline on the kids faces before eating its easier to clean them up at the end! Honest - it's true!

    You can also create great shapes with pasta when it cools. Presentation is key for children.

    Also print of a couple of these little facts for kids about pasta I'm sure they will enjoy colouring and learning while you cook..

    Doesnt have to be spicy....depends on the quantity you use...a hint will change the flavour considerably

    never tried Chocolate and Chilli?

    Yeah last time little un got it in his hair, behind his ear, and on his foot (I could not for the life of me work out how)

    So I'd have to give them a vaseline bath, lot easier sending them out still covered and seeing their reaction when their friends laugh at them :giggle:

    Me too! I blend up any veg in the house into a pulp and add into the sauce... they never know! :-D

    I put some celery in mine and the chef's touch, a glass of red wine. Just delicious!

    just choked on £1 coin:roll:

    Ive found the best way to make it sweeter is to slice wafer thin strips of raw carrot and cook it in with the meat and sauce

    a little red wine is good and for the amount won't affect the kids.
