I think I failed the Heinz secret ingredient cooking challenge!

Heinz challenged me to cook my your own secret recipe using our Heinz Tomato Ketchup cooking pack.

One of the main aims of the project was to creative healthy, affordable ways for parents to spice up meal times – for this reason, so they thought, baby budgeting that might be particularly interested. They were right (but no one had told them about my somewhat limited cooking skills though!)

So instead of a gourmet dish I have a funny story to tell you. For years my kids would come back from my mum’s house telling me they had had pasta and sauce at grandmas and it was yummy. Yet every time I made them sauce they  wouldn’t eat it.  I was just using a regular well know n pasta sauce from a jar but no they wouldn’t touch it. Several years in and I was pushing mum to tell me her secret ingredient for pasta sauce one day and and she finally caved. She grinned and went to get her sauce bottle, her secret ingredient …yep you guessed it they had been eating Pasta and Heinz Ketchup!

What did I come up with?….its an oldie but a goodie. Heinz Tomato Ketchup jazzes up veggie burgers an absolute treat (and my culinary skills are up to the challenge of creating them!) Sorry Heinz. I like to call it ‘A Classic Dish!’
