Who else here is planning on making pasta tonight? It's hands down the easiest, most kid-friendly dish ever. Everyone has their list of favorite pasta dishes. For some people this list consists of one dish: Boiled pasta tossed with butter because that's how the two-year-old likes it. But maybe, moms, you'd like something a little more exciting that that?
There's the "fancy" version of that dish I used to make all the time in college: Buttered spaghetti with lots of lemon juice and pepper. Or you can toss with olive oil and add any of the ingredients we suggest below. The possibilities are endless, but sometimes you just need some fresh ideas. Have you tied these lately?
