Curly noodle and lentil soup - Fail
My older boys disliked this meal so much they were downright rude. Honestly I must be fair, they usually try everything and are fair enough sports with our crazy eating. Tavio (s2) doesn't really like it. I think he'd be perfectly happy with a rotating menu of 7 favorites - one for every day of the week. But that isn't what I like to do and he's stuck with my cooking for now. Back to this recipe - they both folded their arms and refused to eat. I made them eat some, but ended up feeding them an alternate food. I can't say it was that bad - really it wasn't. I thought the flavor was just fine. However, the lentils (or something) gave the pasta a bit of a gritty texture that I didn't care for. I actually had seconds of this at dinner, but didn't save the left overs at all. The recipe is from Family Feasts for $75 a week. She had the greatest description of the lentils floating or bouncing off the curly pasta - no amount of cute would have helped my teens eat this - oh, and it was NOT cute.
