For this recipe, I just used pasta that I had on hand, however, there are so many different pastas you can use now, that are full of all the good stuff.

We recommend using a whole wheat pasta, or vegetable based pasta for the most health and nutrition benefits.

They taste just as delicious, and I promise, your kids won’t even be able to notice.
