Lately it’s been an all out drag down fight to get my kids to eat dinner.
I gave up. I told my husband, “I think I’m boycotting cooking dinner this week.”
But then I came across this pasta. Taco Pasta. Two of my kid’s favorite things in one dinner. Sure to be a hit.
The other tip for success is to make sure your kids are starving. Or if you don’t have kids make sure your husband is starving 😉 Usually as I’m making dinner, the kids are ambushing the refrigerator without me looking (no wonder they never eat). But this time my husband had them outside in the hot tub for a pre-dinner swim.
Dinner was silent. Everyone was busy eating. It was fabulous. And my barely two-year-old ate more than my husband and I put together. My oldest son said that the pasta shells looked and tasted like miniature tacos.
This meal comes together really quickly and doesn’t require the oven so it doesn’t heat up your house.
