Cheesy Ribbon Pasta
For me, a pasta dish is always a good choice for the kids´lunch menu. Coz it´s fast to make and you can use whatever ingredients. This pasta dish is an adaptation from a recipe in Good Food - BBC Books called Cheesy Corn & Broccoli Pasta. But instead of corn & broccoli, I used frozen buttered mix vege as substitute.
Unfortunately, the twins did not fancy this recipe. So they ended up eating only the half of the portion I served and the fish fingers that served together.
Anyway, if you like to try it out, here is the recipe:
100g farfalle (pasta bows)
200g frozen mix vege
100g emmentaler cheese, grated
1. Cook the pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes, or according to the packet instructions, until tender.
2. While pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan with the milk, then bring to boil and add the frozen mix vege. Cook for a while and then remove from heat. Tip in the cheese and stir until melted.
3. Drain the pasta well, return to the pan and pour in the sauce. Toss to mix and season to taste before serving.
