Lotsa Pasta Recipe-Kids Cooking Classes
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.
