For the past week, Maddie has asked for pasta every night.  The other night she had a few of her friends over and I cooked Mac and Cheese and Noodles with Butter for them.  I so much pasta leftover I used it for lunch the next day. I didn’t want them to have the same meal as the night before so I made my own concoction with what I had in the refrigerator.  Last week, I saw my husband add ham to his pasta l and thought it was a great idea so I added ham and broccoli for the girls. They ate it all up, and asked for more.  I didn’t have time to measure everything but this is how I made it:

Pasta: I used leftover egg noodles, add a drop of white truffle oil and a little olive oil; heat in microwave or in a pot on the stove.

In a separate pan, heat ham ( I used Rosemary Ham from Whole Foods). Once heated cut into tiny pieces.

Meanwhile, cook broccoli (use frozen or steam fresh).

Mix together pasta, ham and broccoli.

Add grated Parmesan cheese and serve.

It was quick, easy, and I tried it and liked it.  Be careful not to over do it with the truffle oil.  If you don’t think your child will like it, you can omit it.

You can also let your child come up with their own pasta creation.  Enjoy!
