10 Easy Pasta Recipes for Toddlers

Posted 13/04/2016 in Recipe Collections
I love cooking with pasta! I'm always hunting for new healthy pasta recipes for kids and experimenting with new ingredient combinations. The main thing I have discovered, when creating various pasta recipes for kids, is that the vegetables I add in have to either be "friendly" veggies (as in carrots, corn, and other super familiar non-green vegetables) or they have to be finely chopped or blended then sneakily added in to the sauce. If there are big chunks of broccoli in there, there's a good chance my little guys aren't gonna eat it.
Pasta is always a huge hit at our house. My boys love their "noodles", and will usually eat them right up because all the vegetables are very sneakily included. (They love their couscous almost as much, and believe me this fantastic list of healthy couscous recipes for toddlers is definitely worth checking out).

There are so many easy to create, quick, simple, healthy pasta dishes for kids and toddlers. Here are ten of my favourite kid-friendly pasta recipes, take a look through for some fresh new ideas.

1. Easy Cheesy Veggie Pasta has four different vegetables crammed in with a creamy cheese sauce - yum! 

2. Pasta Carbonara is simply delicious, and you won't believe how quick and easy it is to make yourself. This is one of my favourite healthy pasta recipes for kids, it's always a winner at our house.

3. This aromatic Sesame Soy Veggie Stirfry is easy to make and tastes incredible.
