Pizza is always a winner, with both adults and kids alike. Especially if it’s homemade. No need to let homemade pizza dough scare you. It is really easy to make and this dough doesn’t need to rise for an hour or more, no kneading skills required, it’s really fast. I do have to admit though that I always keep a pizza kit from the supermarket in my fridge for emergencies (read: need to have dinner ready in 15 minutes flat but I have no inspiration whatsoever to prep something). It’s fresh pizza dough in a can plus tomato sauce. For me, it can be a life saver (at least for my nerves on one of those frantic days).
Tomatoes are available at supermarkets all year round, but only now is the right season for super tasty and juicy tomatoes that have soaked up all the summer sun. Now, they are at their best. There is so much you can do with tomatoes, but you know what I like best? A simple tomato salad, where that juicy tomato is the star.
The most simple way of course, is a delicious Caprese salad. Sliced tomato, with Mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, a drizzle of good olive oil and Balsamic vinegar, and if desired a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Nothing more. And all with minimum effort, just slice it up, dress on a plate, dig in.
Tuna Tomato Sauce
This tuna tomato sauce our go-to recipe if we’re really pressed for time and still want to eat a tasty and healthy meal. Ready in less than 10 minutes, really. And so tasty!
Kids love everything rice or pasta. Us grown-ups too. The best pasta sauce is homemade Bolognese sauce, but if done the original way, the best result is when it’s cooked loooong and sloooowly. Unfortunately, I don’t always have time to do that (like almost never). And if I do have the time, I usually forget about starting in time. Luckily, we’ve added quite some nice and quick sauces to our arsenal to choose from. This tuna tomato sauce is one of them.
