2 cups dry mini pasta shells
one bunch roasted beets (alternatively, 1 can. rinsed)
5-10 black olives, sliced
2 T butter
Boil noodles. (For added nutrition, boil in vegetable or chicken stock or milk or a combo rather than water.) Drain. Add butter. Dice beets, slice olives, stir both in with noodles until the noodles are completely pink. Serve one bowl to your hungry kid, freeze the other four for later. This is one of Rowen's top 5 favorite meals, no doubt! Who can resist pink noodles, anyway? ;)
I like to freeze his "meals" flat in sandwich baggies.Then they stack beautifully in a plastic shoe box. See?
