Warning: there will be picture overload on this post. Clearly, I cannot get enough of my child sitting in his chair eating – the light is just too beautiful.
But, even if you don’t feel like looking at a million photos of my kid, you should really read on for this recipe because it’s different, dead easy and my kids loved it.
I know we are always looking for easy recipes, but I feel like it tends to be a lot of the same over and over and this is different enough to feel fresh but familiar enough that the kids will still eat it.
It’s from one of my favourite pasta recipe books The Art of Pasta (which I spoke about previously here). I was a bit iffy about making it but in the end it was just SO easy and such a hit. OK on the healthy scale, it probably doesn’t rate too high but if you want some vegetables I would throw some peas in with the cooking macaroni at the last minute.
I went a little rogue on the original recipe and added quite a bit of parmesan and a pack of ham just to give it a little more dimension. I’ll definitely be making it again (and probably add those peas).
