There is no reason kids can't enjoy Fettucine as much as adults do, you just need to snap it into smaller sizes until they are old enough to get the hang of twirling their pasta on a fork.

Creamy Fettucine any kid would love

This recipe is creamy, simple to make and hides vegetables wonderfully so your kids will have more chance of eating them.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 12 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

300g Fettucine
1 carrot
1/4 broccoli head
1 cup chopped cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon cream


Snap Fettucine into small pieces (about 8cm long) and place directly into a pot of boiling hot water to cook. Check packet instructions, as most pasta cooks within 7-10 minutes.

While cooking, cut up carrot into small pieces and add to cooking pasta (doing carrots first gives them a chance to get soft enough for kids to eat), then cut broccoli into florets and place these in when the pasta only has about 1 minute to go (there's nothing worse than overcooked, brown broccoli to kids, you just want to let it get soft and bright green to make it appealing).

Once pasta is cooked, drain.


Put drained pasta back into the pot to save on washing up, then while still hot add chopped cheese, butter and cream. This allows the cheese and butter to melt and become stringy and gooey. Kids love this gooey consistency.

Now dish into individual bowls and allow to cool enough for your kids to eat before serving as pasta can stay hot for a long while.

Serve once not too hot

As a variation to this recipe, you can add tuna once pasta has cooled down. If doing this, allow the pasta to cool a bit more than you normally would because the tuna and cheese combination tastes better once cooled. Only do this is you have a dedicated tuna fan to feed otherwise it might put them off eating the meal.
