Fun Foods



It's so hard finding and creating new meals to keep the family happy.


We love pasta or all kinds and grew up eating it at least 3 times a week.


Mom made all kinds of delicious sauces, this is one we really loved.


But I have to warn you, this is an addicting easy meal for all ages.


This quick and easy meal will be a big hit and perfect for kids who won't eat their vegetables or meats.

Antonio



Our grandson loves pasta with tomato sauce and always has and his all-time favorite is mac and cheese!


This was a little challenging for him to try something that looked so odd to him, but the shape of this bow tie pasta was such a big hit and he loved this lemon flavored sauce.

Our Grandson Antonio had three helpings he loved the taste of the pasta so much!


He is a very picky eater he made grandma very happy today!


I can usually get him to eat french fries or macaroni and cheese and tomato sauce on pasta, that's it!

A New Name!



He said "Grandma I love butterfly bow ties, that's what he calls them!


Antonio thought the pasta looked like butterflies.


This boy just melts my heart.


The pasta is so tasty and really flavorful with the buttery lemon sauce.


Now we have a new name for this pasta, butterfly bow ties, he is such a cutie!

Lemon Pasta



Of course, now you know we call this butterfly bow ties instead of the real name.


You certainly can use any kind of pasta, but this fun shape really made a big hit with our grandbaby and we were thrilled he got to eat all his dinner!


The sauce is just a tiny bit tangy but the butter compliments this chicken, broccoli and pasta perfectly.

Tips



  • Use fresh lemons for best results
  • You can substitute chicken broth for white wine
  • Add fresh herbs, basil, oregano, rosemary, and dill works great with this dish
  • For a little heat, add some red pepper flakes
  • Cook the pasta al dente, reheating will make the pasta softer for leftovers
  • Cook the chicken thoroughly if using raw and not already prepared
