An easy meal that the kids will love
If you are anything like me, then you are always on the lookout for easy weeknight dinners, that the whole family will love. I often make two dinners - one for the adults and one for my daughter, but it is so much easier to find something that we can all eat together. This recipe puts together everything she likes, so there is nothing that she can pull out and say "yuck" (like she did when I included baby spinach on my first attempt!).

We serve this pasta bake with a fresh side salad and it disappears every time. Why don't you make it for dinner tonight for your family? Hopefully the kids will love it!
