“Tom’s Red Pesto Surprise” from “Leon 2”

Maureen: Tonight we’ve got pasta with peas and bacon. Not to mention some red pesto and onions. Bon appetit!

Nicholas (7): A quick reminder? I don’t like bacon.

Maureen: But you like ham, and it’s pretty much the same thing.

Nicholas: NO. I’m a vegetarian, remember?

Andrew (11): Except when it comes to hot dogs and chicken parmigiana.

Nicholas: Don’t write that down! Don’t write that down!

Nicholas: Remember that time in the restaurant in Bologna that had the funny picture and they were looking for the artist?

Maureen: That was a picture of a pig eating some of their yummy food. Wow. That was some good eating. Let’s get back to the issue at hand. How do you like this?

Andrew: I thought it was quite nice.

Nicholas: I don’t know what to say. I guess I would say, “Without the ham, it would be perfect.”

Maureen: Would you like me to make it again?

Andrew: Definitely!

Nicholas: Without the meat,  yes. With the meat, no.

Maureen: I’m not sure I would make it again. It was fine, it did the job, it fed us. But it didn’t blow me away. If I was in a pinch, cooking wise– which is what the recipe is supposed to help you out with– I would probably make my standby penne with frozen peas and-not-quite-Alfredo sauce.

    Thanks, Dewi. The funny thing is that most times I try to take pictures as it’s cooking the lens fogs up, so you can’t see anything at all!

    @Kathy: I know! Or, for that matter, my son!

    You should know: Vegetarianism, thy name is Esme. The love of his life, Esme (great name, right?), is a vegetarian, which is why he’s giving it a try. Saying that, tonight is Hot Dog Night, so he’ll probably forget when dinner rolls around. He’s inconsistent, but since he’s in love, I’ll let it slide.
