The best thing about hot pasta is that it can "cook" its own sauce. Here is a quick stir-in sauce that will give your child a good dose of fresh vegetables. 

6 chopped fresh tomatoes plus half a cup of water, or 1 large can of chopped tomatoes

6 baby carrots

½ tsp. salt

2 tbsp Basil Infused Olive Oil

8 oz. cooked wagon wheels

Grated parmesan or Romano cheese (optional)

What to do with your kids:

It only takes a few simple steps to make the rich sauce for this melt-in-your-mouth mainstay. Not to mention, comforting macaroni and cheese reaches a new level of gourmet with a drizzle of sumptuous truffle infused olive oil. Try baking individual portions in oiled muffin pans, and pass a tray of mini macs at your next party.

4 tbsp Truffle Olive Oil

4 tbsp all-purpose flour

4 cups milk

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp fresh cracked peppe...

Think Nicoise salad meets tuna casserole and you’ll be somewhere in the ballpark of this recipe. Canned tuna is tossed with chopped tomatoes, olives, red onions, capers, parsley, Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil and Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic, and then tossed again with hot fusilli pasta and shredded Mozzarella cheese.The hot pasta melts the cheese into the tuna mixture. Make it ahead if you wish; if you do, warm it in the micr...

Most children love peanut butter. Here is a simple and delicious sauce that your child can help create in the blender. Make it as mild or spicy as you like by modifying the amount of cayenne pepper and garlic you use. This is a great way to introduce your child to Japanese soba noodles. They have a unique, nutty flavor that kids usually love!

12 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti or Soba noodles

2/3 cup crunchy peanut butter

Of course nothing beats fresh steamed clams for your clam sauce, but if you are in a pinch and trying to get a quick dinner on the table this version is not only delicious, it comes completely out of your pantry with the exception of the fresh parsley. These are ingredients that you can keep on hand for a quick and satisfying meal any day of the week.

1 lb dried linguini

Of course we LOVE to use our olive oils in just about everything we make, but in this case, you just have to use butter. (I know, even just saying the word butter around here is almost blasphemy.) But, of course, we've paired it with our amazingly delicious 18-Year Traditional Balsamic. This 15-minute recipe is so quick and easy and absolutely to die for!

18 to 20 ounces store-bought ravioli (cheese, mushroom, or squash)

Nothing beats fresh ingredients, but there are just some days when a trip to the store is nearly impossible and I like to keep on hand basic staples which allow me to throw together a meal in a snap. Those kinds days call for pantry pasta dinner and this linguini with clam sauce is my favorite. This quick dinner is not only delicious, but it comes completely out of your pantry with the exception of the optional fresh parsley....

In the early days of Tampa, the cigar industry attracted immigrants from Cuba, Sicily and Spain. Before the days of trendy “fusion cuisine,” the immigrants were blending flavors in their cooking. Crab was a staple used in local recipes of all ethnicities because the waters of Tampa Bay were plentiful with blue crab. Every major ethnic group in Tampa ate this dish.
