Simple Pasta for Kids


My six year old loves to cook with me. Seeing as how she has an interest in what I do, and that having a hand in making the food that she eats, actually makes her eat better. (She’s a fussy eater).  I decided to start “Nunu’s Kitchen Fun”  to feature all the recipes that she makes with her sister, aged nine. They were in and out of the kitchen in 10 minutes. All I helped them with was the cooking of the pasta to al – dente and mincing a shallot.
They love this pasta, it must however be served warm!
