*add one teaspoonful of stuffing in a line , cover with another rolled dough, add egg wash on sides  then cut into squares using a cutter or roller knife.

* keep dusting with flour so as pieces won’t stick to pan.

* cook in salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes only.

Shushbarak in Tomato Sauce.

Hello everybody.

How are you all doing in this heat?  Guess hot fatty dishes aren’t desirable in this weather though many made mansaf or maqloubeh nevertheless.

Well a last minute decision cause all woke up late was this long time no cook dish. Shushbarak with tomatoes, I added mushrooms black olives, pesto, oregano and a bit of feta cheese over ready made shushbarak pieces then all topped with mozzarella.

Yummy cool and fulfilling, fake ravioli my kids call it.

Shushbarak in Tomatoe Sauce.

Hello everybody.
Hope you’re all enjoying  the lovely spring weather these days. Personally I love this time of year, though many people have allergies and flu but weather is perfect. Had a tasty breakfast with hubby outside today, yummy yummy.


As for lunch, after a long discussion with my boys last night before bed about the blog, how many posts I did and how it’s been 3 months,,,, no repeated meal ..hurrrrraaayyyy!!!
They decided they want shushbarak (remember I did it before with yoghurt? ? Shushbarak. ) but this time with tomato sauce or as they call it Arabic Ravioli :). Though it’s very similar to pasta and we already ate pasta yesterday but i’ll do what they want for sure.♡♥

Ingredients and method:
* shushbarak pieces, ready or homemade.
* 1 can chopped tomatoes or 3 ripe chopped ones.
* green or dry onion also chopped.
* dry basil and organo.
* sliced black olives.
* salt and pepper.
* cheese to top if you like.

* saute onions in olive oil till tender.
* arrange shushbarak pieces on top.
* add tomatoes, you can add tomato paste and water if you like.
* add olives, salt, pepper, oregano and basil.
* leave to simmer for 25-35 minutes.
* add cheese on top as preferred.








I guess no pasta for the next two weeks!!!
