Any idea to add in my menu that would love by my kids? They love pasta. Hope you could help me with it. Thanks!
Camille - hello :)
What age group are we looking at with your kids? If they love pasta, then that opens a world of dishes :)
you could do (depending on age):
A simple Mac and Cheese - one pot wonder
Mac/spaghetti and meat sauce
"Rainbow Pasta" - dice up red, yellow, and green bell peppers and an onion, maybe with a bit of diced bacon if they like it, saute gently in frypan with olive oiland a little S&P till onion is transparent. Meanwhile, cook your dried pasta in lots of boiling salted water (2 Tbsp of salt for 4 people) and drain, then toss together with "Rainbow" mix, add some butter and/or grated cheese of your choice (I like mozarella or cheddar plus a sprinkle of grated Paremsan), toss together and serve.
If they don't like peppers you could use tomatoes instead, and take the bacon out if you are non-meat eaters, just add more cheese :)
Or if you are not confident with cooking, you could buy a pre-roasted chook, then shred and de-bone it to mix with some cooked pasta, maybe mac or penne or spirals, toss with grated cheeses of choice.
