Abby loves to help me cook.
She is always eager to grab the ingredients from the cupboard, help measure, pour, and stir.
However, lately, being the 3 1/2 year old that she is, she wants to cook "all by myself."
So I found a few recipes that (with a small amount of prep work done by me) she can make herself.
The first recipe she tried was a pasta salad that we have been eating for lunch.
She is so proud of herself and it is too cute!
Kid-friendly Pasta Salad
recipe adapted from Live, Laugh, Cook
About 8 oz. cooked whole grain rotini
4 oz. low-fat cheddar cheese (cubed)
1/2 a bag of turkey pepperoni (cut into fourths)
about 1-1 1/2 cups low-fat Italian dressing
Dump all the ingredients into a large bowl.
Store in the fridge in an air-tight container.
