Gwyneth Paltrow just posted her fave recipe for a Sunday family dinner on her Web site,, which she says is perfect for husband Chris Martin, and their kids, Apple, 4 and Moses 2.

On the menu: Garlic bread with butter and parmesan, meatballs made from healthy turkey and green peas – plain for the kids and with olive oil for the adults.

As Paltrow writes, “The meatballs can simmer away for the afternoon and you only need to make your spaghetti, garlic bread and peas later. The garlic bread takes 15 minutes and is so good, you may want to double the recipe.”

Adds the homemaker Hollywood star: “My kids like peas plain so I do a bowl for them and one for the ‘grownies’ as my daughter calls us. It requires nothing more than a squeeze of lemon juice, torn basil, a drizzle of good olive oil and a little Maldon sea salt for good measure.”
