Cheesy Tuna Pesto Pasta

I remember the time when I cooked my very first pasta dish 16 years ago. Nobody in the family knew how to cook after my father passed away in 1996. Being the eldest in the family, I was obliged to learn how to cook for my brothers and sisters and copy my father’s style of cooking. And when my sister Rose gave birth to her daughter Nicole in 1997, the name “NANAY DODES” was born. My love for my niece brought forth my passion in cooking, my desire to prepare delicious home cooked party dishes and to give her decent birthday parties in the early stages of her life. Well, I miss her so much. It’s been six years since I last saw her( She’s now staying with her mom in New Jersey).

If I had to ask my son now and let him guess that pasta dish that I first cooked, I am a hundred percent positive, he would say “easy peasy lemon squeezy, it’s spaghetti!” But let’s reserve the spaghetti for the next birthday party at home. What i’d like to share with you now is this simple pasta dish that is so easy to prepare. All you need to do is to put a few spoonfuls of olive oil in a pan, add 6-8 cloves of crushed garlic, add 3 whole sliced tomatoes, bring the tomatoes to a simmer and then add one canned tuna, three tbsp. of bottled pesto, one tbsp. of dried parsley and about two tbsp of parmesan cheese. Boil up a bunch of spaghetti in salted water and cook until they’re al dente. Then in a serving bowl, combine the drained pasta with the tuna pesto sauce. You now have a fragrant ,healthy and delicious pasta dish that is so easy to prepare.

That’s it! Easy, healthy and delicious! Thank you so much,Nanay’sluncheswithlove

Last day of school

We all woke up happy, relaxed and a bit late this morning and asked my son Luis to describe me using 10 adjectives.

I got these answers …:)

LUIS: “beautiful, brown hair, tall, hardworking, playful, funny, creative, happy, lovable, prayerful, good cook…”

hahahahha.. Thank you anak for making me happy in your own little way. He may have seen me in my worst and trying times as a mother. But still, he manages to remember all the good things that I do for them and all the good traits that I have.

Finally, today is the last day of school. Luis, my baby, is going to be a 2nd grader! Yipee! The past few weeks have been really busy.Most of the moms I know are feeling a little bit stretched to say the least.

After Luis’s Student teacher conference later, we’ll head home, take off my watch and put it on a shelf.Then we’ll do something totally fun for the kids. We’ll do whatever they want and we are going to find some fun FREE stuff to do this weekend!

 The last day of school always seems to remind me to cherish and celebrate every moment.I am so grateful for the gift of sharing this journey with my two little boys.

Healthy Chicken Wrap

I made a delicious and healthy whole wheat tortilla chicken wrap for lunch loaded with cucumber, lettuce, onions and tomatoes. I used grilled chicken (marinated in sundried tomato pesto),a teaspoon of yoghurt and half a  teaspoon of low fat cottage cheese for the dressing.Ooops of course i didn’t forget to put some hot sauce – yes hot sauce! It has been scientifically tested, proven, and reported in the Journal of Biological Chemistry that it actually raises resting body temperature.Capsaicin, the active chemical in pepper stimulates a sensory receptor found in our neurons, creating thermogenesis- the process in which cells convert energy into heat.
Another side effect? An increase in metabolism! Want to grab a  bite of my healthy chicken wrap?
