Easier Than Boxed Mac and Cheese -- Fit Baby Version

Ingredients

  • Bean pasta with olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Broccoli Pre-made pasta
  • Chicken breast or grilled fish (for “FIT MOM” version)

Instructions

  1. Run pre-made pasta under instant hot water or boil water in the microwave in 3 minutes and pour that over it to reheat the pasta
  2. Boil the broccoli during the last 2 minutes of cooking the pasta
  3. Toss it in olive oil and parmesan cheese

Tips

  • If you think your child doesn’t like bean pasta, make sure you’re not overcooking it – I always do it less than package directions for al dente – then it’s not mushy and doesn’t taste like beans.
  • Make sure you’re serving the “right” shape of pasta. Make sure you’re buying one that “looks like” what your child already enjoys.
