We have an almost 4-year-old in our house and that means it matters when things are “cute” now. In fact, one recent spaghetti dinner became an even bigger hit when we did just a few easy things. To make pasta even more popular (and sometimes a bit healthier) in your home, try these tips:
— Use a whole-wheat blend of pasta instead of regular white bread.
— Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt to the cooking water; the flavor gets in as the pasta cooks.
— Reduce the cooking time 2 minutes less than whatever the box says and let the noodles finish cooking in the sauce on the stove.
