I have all the pretty pasta for you today!
They would literally opt for it plain with a little vegetable or chicken stock every time if I let them, so this is my (arty) way of making it fun and more filling for them (and me) adding some basil and parmesan.
Now I’m a blogger so of course bowls bursting to the brim with pasta is what my kids actually eat that do not look like the above but I wanted to style up the plate and make the pasta shells look as pretty as possible.
You can opt for gluten-free too.
My son used to come out in rashes and it seemed gluten appeared to exacerbate this problem but the last few months after a break from eating it, has seen him be able to enjoy wheat and gluten products again.
So here’s how to create this dish (in bigger bowls of course) for all the family!
- 500g pasta shells
- 1 organic chicken or vegetable stock cube
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small bunch of fresh basil, finely chopped
- Parmesan, grated
Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling water. Add the stock cube so the pasta absorbs the flavours. When cooked and al dente (my kids like it a bit softer) drain keeping some of the juice for the bowl. Drizzle in olive oil, decorate with finely chopped basil and add the grated parmesan.
Quick, easy, no fuss pasta for all the family.
