We’ve just recently been on holiday. We went to France, and it was truly wonderful. However, as we all know, travelling with children is always a challenge. This trip was rather more challenging, as there was a child on the trip I had not spent time with, and to add to that he was vegetarian.
Well, the French do not do ‘vegetarian’ too well, and thus, the challenge.
Dinner at home was not too difficult, we managed a normal, simple pasta recipe.
Here’s how I do it:
- 1 cup macaroni (or any fun pasta)
- 100g Mozzarella cheese (grated)
- 1 Tsp butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 sliced courgette
- 1 cubed tomato
Cook the pasta as instructed on the packet. I place it into a pot with boiling water and allow it to boil further for 15 mins. Drain Pasta well, replace in pot with new boiled water and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Drain pasta and pour into a bowl.Mix in the butter, salt and pepper. Add the Mozzarella or Cheddar cheese.
As my extra child does not eat anything else in his pasta, a more adventurous child would enjoy extras in their pasta like the courgettes (boiled in a pan of water for 20 minutes, then drained and added to the
pasta in the bowl). They might also like tomato added, cut the tomato into cubes, and spread
above the pasta. It adds wonderful colour to the dish.
