Tangy Sauce

6 Sep

Mantou has a certain expressions on his face when he tries something new. It’s like he’s expecting not to like it. He scrunches up his face and opens his mouth just a crack to get a taste of this strange new food. Most of the time he’ll go for another bite, others not so much. Pasta with tomato sauce is one of the entrees that he was not excited about. One bite of the tomato-sauce covered noodle and he made his sour faced expression and quickly spit it out, refusing to take another bite. We ended up just giving him the brown-rice noodles plain and he didn’t make a fuss about that. I thought all kids loved spaghetti.

Pasta hasn’t always been at the top of my list even though it’s easy to make. I think it’s because I don’t want to deal with the aftermath of red spaghetti sauce all over the place. I guess I don’t have to worry about that! Seriously though it must be the type of spaghetti sauce I used, this bottle was Safeway Select Tomato Basil. It was a bit more tangy than other sauces I had used before. I think I’ll have to try for something that isn’t as acidic maybe sweeter. I used to buy the cheesy-sauces but cannot do that anymore. Are there any suggestions or favorites spaghetti sauces that I can try with Mantou?
