One Pot Chicken and Veggie Pasta – Kids

Serves: 8

We recently employed a nanny to help with the boys at night.

And when I suggested that she might like to encourage their cooking skills by cooking suitable dinners together, she loved the idea.

Tonight’s dinner was really good and kid friendly on all fronts. And one-pot pasta is genius on so many preparation/cooking/cleaning/genius levels.

And when I say ‘good’, I mean, I had a bowl and loved it good. Local cafe good.

If you have kids and want them to cook/eat, this is a great recipe to try.

If you want to cook/eat, you could do a whole lot worse.

Simple.
