I hope the title peaked your interest! Since October is National Pasta Month I thought is would be a bit fun to come a very kid friendly pasta dish. I wanted something that would be easy to make yet a bit of fun for the little ones. The criteria was quite clear that the dish be fun and kid friendly but I also wanted it to be Mom friendly. I also wanted everything to be entirely edible so no toothpicks holding things together or any non-edible props. Our grandchildren are all under the age of 5 so this was important to me.
In hind sight there are a few little extras I could have added like a couple of cooked macaroni shells. Some type of a treasure chest would be rather neat too and I thought about adding a cheese flag on a thin carrot stick flag pole. The possibilities are really endless. As the dish stands though I think any little one would enjoy eating it!
