Butter Parmesan Pasta
Feeding kids can be hard sometimes. My kids love something I cook and then the next time hates it. They only want food on a certain color plate with a matching color fork and let’s not even get started on the cup request. If you have kids to feed I’m sure you are feeling my pain right now. Mealtime is much easier when I am serving the kids something they love. This Butter Parmesan Pasta is one of my kids favorite. I made this when Chad and I went out of town so Nana would have a simple meal for them and even she loved it!
