Kirstin: This is rather good.
Tom: It’s rather clever the way he cooks the meat in parallel with the sauce which makes it much drier than our usual sausage sauce. Nice one! Because the way we normally cook our sausage sauce means the longer you cook it, the better it is.
Kirstin: I could have added some of the cooking water to make it less dry, but tipped it all away before I read that bit in the recipe. I also couldn’t be bothered to really rush this recipe as I had a lovely chat with Tom about our days as I cooked. It added time, but also pleasure to the making of the meal.
Kirstin: You know what though, this could do with some chilli!
Tom: What do you think Oscar, the cat?
Kirstin: Oscar came down for dinner before anyone else. He really likes it, our gourmet cat!
Miles: The pasta is the best!
Ella: The pasta is good but not as good as the pasta I made this morning because that was glorious!
Kirstin: What did you make in food tech today then Ella? I’m guessing it was pasta.
Ella: We made that flat, long, rectangular spaghetti.
Ella: That’s it!
