Toddler Treats – Rainbow Spaghetti

Hey Guys!

I hope you enjoyed last weeks Cauliflower Crunchies! They were a perfect way to re-introduce a vegetable that my toddler would normally just pick off her plate, but last week she really enjoyed them.

This week I have something for you that I have been wanting to do for quite some time, and thankfully recently I was able to make it. I was impressed how quick and easy this was to put together, as I think that’s why I kept putting it off, thinking it would be a pain to make. But as it turns out, it’s super easy!

What you’ll need:

– Spaghetti pasta
– Food colouring of your choice
– Ziplock/freezer bags

The how-tos:

It’s so simple! All you need to do it boil up your pasta, once ready you drain it off and run over with cold water. I chose to use five colours, so I needed five little bags and I added 4 tbsp of water and then a few drops of my chosen food colouring {mix it up} and then I separated the pasta into each bag. I gave each bag a wee smoosh and a swish to make sure the pasta was covered and then left it for a few minutes to let the pasta soak up the glorious colouring.

Then drain off each bag under the water tap to drain off any access food colouring and just add them to your chosen dish {mine was a little beauty from Ikea} and all I did then was heat up some sauce from a tin of spaghetti hoops to give it a bit of saucy goodness, popped it into the microwave for 20secs to heat it up and serve.

I was pretty impressed how vibrant the pasta came out with the colours I chose and I was excited to serve it up to Annabelle.

When I first gave it to her she wasn’t too sure what I had put in front of her, due to it looking so pretty and colourful. But she loves anything spaghetti/noodles/chow mein related so I knew she’d enjoy it once she tasted it and I was right.

Super fun dish to make and really doesn’t take too long to put together! I think the whole process took me about half an hour and so worth it seeing how much Annabelle enjoyed it. Next, I’ll try it on the bigger kids! As I’m sure their reception of it will be the same as their little Sisters.

I do hope you liked it and decide to have a go at making it yourself. If you do I’d love for you to hashtag #ToddlerTreats over on Twitter and tag me in, I’d love to see your dishes!
