Dress Up the Pasta
- whole wheat pasta (artichoke, quinoa good choices)
- onions and garlic
- spinach or zucchini
- marinara sauce
Kids like pasta. Your job is to make it a little more nutritious. Here are some suggestions.
|Use whole wheat (or artichoke, or quinoa) pasta. |
|Add chopped garlic, onion, peppers and zucchini or spinach to a store-bought organic marinara sauce. Heat thoroughly to cook veggies. |
|Saute broccoli with a little olive oil and garlic and place on top of pasta and sauce. |
For fun - could be “trees on top of the mountain"!
|For the really tough ones, the ones who like butter ONLY on their pasta, try this: |
Put carrots (spinach or kale too if you are bold enough) in the food processor to create a vegetable puree, and add it to a little melted butter or olive oil. You can tell them this is the REAL bunny pasta.
