Home cooking is best?

Ready meals from the supermarket may be quick and easy to prepare when you’re short of time, but they often contain a lot of salt, extra sugar and by far not enough vegetables. By contrast, here’s the simple ingredients list for a ‘make your own’ lasagna using the Philips Pasta Maker recipe for Lasagna alla Bolognese:

  • Lasagna sheets
  • Olive oil
  • Onion, celery, carrots, red pepper
  • Pancetta
  • Ground beef
  • Tomato puree, sieved tomatoes
  • Beef stock
  • Béchamel sauce: butter, flour, milk, parmesan cheese
  • Your choice of vegetables, for a lovely side dish

By preparing your own food at home from scratch, you know exactly what is going into your meals. So, if you want control over what you and your family eat, the answer is home cooking. Enlist the kids to help you make lasagna tonight -- they will love it!
