Cheesy Taco Pasta
If you have a toddler, then you’re well aware that their food decisions make no sense whatsoever. One day, they’ll devour a bowl of pasta no questions asked and the next, they won’t even put it to their lips. I try to use similar words like, “Try” or “For Luca” when Luca denies familiar foods, and sometimes, it works, and sometimes, it doesn’t.
It can be really frustrating, but it’s all part of the process. Something comforting for me was hearing the advice to look at the week of food as a whole, not day by day (because if you look at it day by day, you’ll beat yourself up and go crazy!)
This Cheesy Taco Pasta is so easy to make and is for the whole family – it makes a giant portion to share, it’s super flavorful and has just a spicy kick enough not to scare off new eaters and just enough to satisfy adults. It’s cheesy, so, who can so no to cheese? And I made mine with Banza rotini to squeeze in extra nutrition (chickpeas are a great source of protein and iron!)
You can switch up the type of meat you use here in this quick weeknight pasta – ground chicken, turkey, or beef are usually hits with Luca. But then again… you never know!
