My girls didn't want to eat the porridge so I made this pasta dish for them. It just so happen that I had a bottle of salsa in the pantry that I needed to use. So, I created this easy macaroni and shrimps pasta with it. None of them complaint that it was spicy so I guess it was not spicy to them, as it only listed as mild. However, my picky eater Evy won't eat the tomatoes. She is a strange little girl, as she will eat the blended pasta tomato sauce but not if she can see the tomato. So, she only ate the macaroni and shrimps and picked out all the tomatoes and set it aside on her plate.
It is really hard as tomato is good for her. I think she got influence by her daddy as he would not eat tomatoes too. Because of this, I don't buy tomatoes. Guess I will have to cook more spaghetti with tomato based pasta sauce as this is the only time she would eat it with no complaint.
I'm sharing this noodle with Presto Pasta Nights, an event created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week host is Valli of More Than Burnt Toast. Check out her delicious round up on Sept, 24th!
