Because I’m at home most of the day I usually prefer meals that can be popped in the oven, so it doesn’t leave me scrambling to cook something while my son is hanging around, pulling on my shirt asking for his third portion of cheese.
But this meal is different. It’s SUPER easy, doesn’t use a lot of dishes and most importantly everyone loves it. Not easy when you have a son who eats something one day and spits it out the next. OK maybe this dish is not some super healthy lentil and kale stew, but sometimes you just gotta go with what works.
This recipe is from my collection of magazine clippings which I’m going to talk about tomorrow. I am a big believer in easy access and storage and have developed a system for all those amazing recipes you find in magazines and want to use in the future. It works and it doesn’t take up tons of room.
We use a TON of parmesan in the dish – much more than what’s recommended. I’ve had friends try it with no parmesan at all though, and they’ve loved it too so add according to your taste.
