Cooking with kids is fun and rewarding! This Lotsa Pasta recipe was a huge hit here at Little Sprouts. Even the picky eaters like it. It just takes a little planning to learn how to teach kids cooking classes.
Lotsa Pasta is easy, inexpensive, and something that’s great fun to cook with the kidlets. What could be better? The possibilities of what you could add to it are endless. You can use leftovers, whatever you need to use up from the fridge, and it’s healthy!
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.
Giving kids cooking classes to your kids will help them be enthusiastic about trying new things and will teach them skills they need for life. This Lotsa Pasta recipe will be a great start in teaching them.

They cherish them. My kids are learning a ton of cooking skills from these experiences. Kids cooking school is one of their favorite activities too!
