Okay – so, you likely won’t have heard of this dish before.

This dish, Pasta a la George, is my four year old daughter’s invention. She chose the ingredients for dinner one night and I whipped it up and we achieved one of our favorite meals ever! I hope you enjoy it too.

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Optional basil/spinach leaves
