Today I posted two new kiddy friendly recipes, 4 Can Savoury Muffins and Lunchbox Biccies, so why not add a kiddie friendly dinner too!
This is a “use the scraps from the fridge” kind of dinner. The boys love this and often eat two big bowls full each. Not bad for a dinner made of bits and bobs. Ive put down that it tales 25 minutes but it really is quicker than that. Perfect for a last minute meal. Did I mention very budget friendly too?
Because I’m lazy and want a quick, fuss free dinner I blitz my spinach early on in the process and therefore the sauce does go a slight green colour. Once stirred through the pasta you can only slightly tell and my boys aren’t phased at all buy it (yet can normally detect spinach or anything green from a mile away and protest?!). If the veggie detectives in your house will be repulsed by this I suggest leaving the spinach out or slice by hand and add in the last minute with the cheese (you will see what I mean when you look at the recipe).
I love Herbamare at the moment as its adds such a great flavour to meals. You can however use regular salt, 1/2 a teaspoon of vegetable stock concentrate or leave it out. I add it for flavour.
You can try my Hidden Veggie Pasta Carbonara for something similar but a little more traditional.
I haven’t forgotten you! Instructions for traditional method can be found below the Thermo Mixer instructions.
