Mozzarella Stuffed Sausage Balls or Boo Boo Cooks Her First Meal, Start to Finish!

My daughter loves to watch Food Network.  We were watching 30-Minute Meals yesterday and the recipes Rachael Ray was making looked delicious.  Boo Boo asked to make the entire meal for dinner.  We made Mozzarella Stuffed Sausage Balls with Tomato- Basil Sauce, Cacio e Pepe Potatoes and Roast Broccolini.  We made 2 changes - subbing italian sausage and ground pork for the chicken sausage and asparagus for the broccolini and we actually completed the meal in 30 minutes. 

Boo Boo did 80% of the work for the entire meal.  She was so proud of herself, she called her Nanny to invite her to dinner and she even talked her brother in to cutting some hydrangeas from the garden to decorate the table.  It was delicious and we are putting the entire menu into our Family Favorites file.

 Tossing the asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper.
 Mashing potatoes with chicken broth, milk, Parmesan cheese and black pepper.
 Adding pesto to the crushed tomatoes.
All ready to eat!
