There are so many reasons why family dinners are important, but in terms of getting my kids to become good eaters, sharing a meal starts to connect good food with togetherness. My goal is to serve a wide variety of foods that include what I want to cook and eat, and not skip a new recipe because we fear the kids won't like it.
When I discovered Harper loves edamame, I started looking for recipes that include this healthy, green vegetable. This Rainbows and Butterflies Pasta Salad from Ellie Krieger hit all the right notes for my kiddos, including a creative name for the dish. I sealed the deal with Harper when I asked if she wanted to make this together.
8 ounces Farfalle (bow tie) pasta
Olive Oil (I like California Olive Ranch evoo)
