Lotsa Pasta-Cooking with Kids

There are many great reasons to let your kids get their hands on the fun in the kitchen. I had kids as young as one helping dump stuff in the skillet on the stove for this dish. As long as you watch them closely, kids can do many of the steps.

If you’re worried about them getting burned, you can let them stay at the table with the ingredients and just bring the skillet to them to dump in the ingredients. Then you can just carry the skillet back to the stove for cooking.

    I love getting the kids involved in the kitchen! I really do hope that when it comes their time to fly the nest that they have all the skills they need to feed themselves healthily. A great recipe, we will definitely give it a try 🙂

    Thanks for linking up to #ToddlerApprovedTuesday
