Veggie Bow-Tie Pasta | Recipe Treasure

Normal kids don’t necessarily enjoy eating vegetables, well at least not willingly but they do LOVE pasta! As a kid, I always felt a connection with pasta since they came in different shapes and sizes so I thought of them as toys and would play with them during my meals. My mom used this to her advantage because while I was distracted by my “toys”, she’d feed me veggies in between bites.

After growing up, I realized how I was being fooled all along and how my mom slyly fed me those veggies. Years later, we still use the same tactic to feed the kids in my family veggies except this time, we mix the veggies and the bow-tie pasta together and flavor it so the kids actually enjoy eating it! Let me introduce you to a great recipe of veggie bow-tie pasta with you all!
