Annabel Karmel's Pasta....a review....







The review was, or rather is for Annabel Karmel's Make it Easy pasta range. I say "was" because as a written review it's actually been ready for some time, BUT I had no camera to document with. Therefore,I must apologise, no grovel, to Sian at Clear as PR, who has been very patient.

Right, onward! The pasta initially appealed because it had the words "Make it Easy" emblazoned on the packet...ahhh..music to my ears. And was it? Yep, cooked in 5 minutes, no problems. The other positive, was the fact that it is gluten free. Now, I'm no expert on nutrition but serving gluten to a delicate digestive system does concern me somewhat; ergo, the promise of "gluten free" was again, music to my ears.

Another plus point with this product was, a little went a long way. It has fed my 4 and 6 year old over the past few days, as well as the baby and, as the picture shows, there's still plenty left. I used it in a stew:"Yum" says Lily, 6; I used it with pesto :"Don't like pesto!" says Zak, 4 but Archie did and here's the photographic evidence to prove it

Above: eagerly anticipating cheesy pasta and pesto; doesn't that face just say "Feed me NOW mummy!" Below: one satisfied customer and I do hope he remembered to compliment the chef!




So, the last word to baby Archie. Will it be an optimistic "Ah Da" or a wholly negative "DA DA DA"; he said "Ah Da". The right result and a ringing endorsement!




Finally, don't forget to get yourself over to Brits in Bosnia and enjoy the best of what the mummy blogger's have to offer this fortnight. Better than a magazine and much more economical!!

Thanks ;-) (proud mother beam) I'm surprised he actually let me feed him, I usually just have to plonk the food on his tray and let him get on with it! Uninteresting fact: the high chair is nearly 50 years old; it belonged first to my cousins then to me and my siblings and then to my three...falling to bit now but can't bear to part with it.

Pasta is a lovely food for kids. I used to make a lot of macaroni cheese at one time. Must get back to it.

My daughter requested macaroni cheese this evening; with leeks (good girl!).

I just realized I spelt "gluten" as "glutton"! Is my subconscious trying to tell me something?! All corrected now....phew!

I never get a 'yum', you say it's all in the pasta? Off to bulk buy.

I must say we've gone onto brown penne now; better for him to grab and feed himself (and cheaper)
