Most of the kids love noodles n pastas, hope everyone might have crossed rarely kids saying that they wont like pastas r noodles..i have seen my cousin's kids started having pastas once they crossed their first anniversary, even my sister in law used to add pasta in her kid's soups just to finish their soups..Pasta are quite a complete meal for kids with these sorts of creamy sauce...I love to prepare pastas often coz pastas are prepared with wheat flour n the sauce which i prepare always to the have with pastas are mostly prepared with low fat cream which are rich in calcium and i used toss always the sauce with veggies, quite a simple way to feed kids with the veggies if they dont like to have as stir fry etc..So u can guess easily that i will surely have always a packet of pasta in my pantry n these pastas are really handy to feed easily anyone within few minutes...Our's yesterday lunch was Pasta with creamy tomato sauce n broccoli with french fries..i simply prepared this creamy tomato sauce with tomato pulp, low fat cream n flat parsley leaves with broccoli..This is my entry for Pasta Party by Jyoti of Panch Pakwan..
