Anyone with a busy schedule or picky kids knows that pasta is a staple in the pantry. I always loved plain pasta as a child, but as I grew into adulthood I started appreciating different flavors and ingredients to compliment the pasta I was eating. After I had kids, I tried to make healthier dishes with fun pasta they would love. From homemade mac and cheese with a twist to sneaking veggies in pasta sauce, I’ve tried it all! I always find the best way to get my kids to try something new is by letting them help or watch me prep dinner.
Garlic is a flavor both my girls LOVE. My mother in law would always joke that while other kids smelled like “baby,” mine smelled like garlic. I know that I can add a little garlic powder to just about anything and they will at least try a new dish. After looking over the recipes at Past Fits, I knew immediately my girls would at least try, if not love the Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Pasta. This is an easy-enough dish that can be prepared in a bind on a busy school night, and you can add veggies on the side and even some grilled chicken or meatballs to make it a complete meal. Sometimes I make grilled chicken and meatballs on the weekend and keep them in the fridge for a few days to help get through dinners on our busiest nights.
What I love most about pasta is the ease and versatility. In just 15 minutes pasta is ready and waiting to be created into a simple or fun dish that everyone in the family will love. After visiting Pasta Fits, I know it will be my go-to for simple pasta recipes for any day of the week! Be sure to follow Pasta Fits on Facebook!
