Peek-A-Boo Pasta Is a Hit With Kids

How do you get your kids to eat their veggies?

Alison from Cooking With Friends posted this great recipe for Peek-A-Boo Pasta, which her kids love. It's so named because the colorful veggies "hide" inside the tubes of pasta and "peek out" at you just before you take a bite!


Peek-A-Boo Pasta From Cooking With Friends

(Serves 3)

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 large garlic cloves, chopped

2 medium and firm zucchinis, quartered, seeds removed and cut into pieces

1 small yellow squash, seeds removed and diced

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup chicken broth (or 1 cup Knorr’s chicken bouillon dissolved)

Salt and pepper to taste

Parmesan cheese for sprinkling

1/2 pound cooked pasta (shells or tubes for hiding the veggies)

Heat olive oil. Cook the garlic for a minute over medium heat. Add the zucchini and yellow squash and saute until tender (about 10 minutes), stirring frequently. Season with salt and pepper. Add the peas and cook for another few minutes. Turn the heat up and add the chicken broth and cooked pasta. Combine well and serve topped with grated Parmesan cheese.
