After posting the picture on Instagram and Facebook, I’ve owed the recipe to a number of people for quite a while. Somehow creating a casserole out of your spaghetti and sauce turns it into a much more exciting and satisfying dinner than just boiling noodles…not much additional work, trust me!
1 lb box spaghetti, linguini or cappellini
2 bunches fresh raw spinach, washed well and chopped coarsely (optional)
2-3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 stick unsalted butter
I 16 oz jar of your favorite sauce (homemade could work too, but I promised little work!)
½ cup cornflake crumbs
I get more and more fed-up every time I hear another person's 'tricks' to hide vegetables from their children. Vegetables come in such a myriad of shapes, colors and flavors that is is virtually impossible for any person to hate ALL of them. A bright, colorful stir-fry is a great way to get your child to eat veggies because it's pretty and inviting.
Even if your kids are a hard sell, this stir-fry sauce is so yummy that it just may convice them!
Sweet & Tangy Stir-Fry Sauce
6 Tbsp rice vinegar
5 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or 2 tsp dried ginger
