I would relish & eat simple meal with great delight.Best way to unwind for me is with my family at home, listening to some wonderful music,good food,lots of laughter and possibily some good wine =) Join me as I share with you some wonderful recipes that I have cooked over the years for my family which I usually serve with a large dollop of love ♥.

Melt the butter in a saucepan.Add chopped garlic,saute till the raw smell fades away.Add the cheese & coconut milk to it and stir cotinuously till the cheese melts & blends in.Now add the carrots & beens (I boil it along with the pasta to save time).Add the cooked pasta.Season it with oregano,salt,chilly flakes.Add a dash of fresh cilantro.Pasta is ready.This tastes best when served hot.

So it is as simple as this.try it I am sure you & ofcourse your kids will love it !
