I often find that the simplest meals are the best. This is so easy, the kids can do it! It is a real family pleaser, and therefore I guess a mum pleaser.
Get your water on for the pasta and then the rest is done in the time it takes to cook the pasta.
When my boys were growing, we had pasta on the menu probably twice a week at least. They loved it, it filled them up, there were often leftovers for after school snacking the next day and it was always simple to whip up.
You're welcome mum...give yourself a break hey?
