Dress Up the Pasta
Updated: Dec 29, 2021
whole wheat pasta (artichoke, quinoa good choices)
onions and garlic
spinach or zucchini
Kids like pasta. Your job is to make it a little more nutritious. Here are some suggestions.
Use whole wheat (or corn, 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.
