Welcome to Man of the Kitchen! Shahir Massoud, king of all things delicious on CBC's The Goods, loves to kick back in the kitchen and make the meals he really craves — but his new baby has certainly changed the game. He's still cooking for a night in with the guys and brunch with friends but he's finding recipe twists and 'aha!' hacks to make it all easier, quicker, but as tasty as ever.​

Shair knows that between your job and your kids — and binge watching The Goods — there will come an evening when you you realize with a start: "I have to make dinner and there is nothing in the fridge." Which is why there should always be something in your freezer. Shair shares a simple dish we can make, freeze and forget about until we need it. Think nothing frozen is tasty? He was one of those people that didn't really freeze food until his newborn baby came on the scene. The baby, and this baked rapini and sausage pasta in a bechamel sauce, changed his mind.
