Aioli pasta salad is a cold salad. It needs minimal ingredients and cooks fast. You can make it vegan or non vegan depending on aioli or ingredients added. Summer salad is perfect way to unwind after a long day at work. This is a vegan pasta salad version using vegan mayo or garlic kebab sauce.
I can say this is my current favorite. My toddler loves finger food. Hence, I need to keep my chef's hat on always. The most common complaint I hear from fellow parents is their food worries. Every parent wants their kids to eat healthy and wholesome meals. Every parent thinks this at least twice a day. Has my baby eaten well? Do others also think the same? Or is it just my kid who doesn't eat at all.
Hence, we are forever trying to make them eat and thus have to make food interesting.
I try to incorporate simple flavors. It should be easy to cook and toddler friendly. Also you can give it in their lunch boxes if kids are at school.
Time is definitely short once you have a toddler in the house. You are busier than you can think you will be.
This dish is an easy one and yummy too. Most kids love pasta. They can finish a full bowl of Italian pasta in few minutes.
You can use any pasta for it which you like. Penne, macaroni or spaghetti.
Using colorful pasta also increases the chance of them tasting it.
However, it need not be loaded with cheese or tomato sauce all the time.
Even subtle flavors work well with pasta.
This is a good way of adding broccoli to your meals.
