For menu #18 of our Lunch Box Series I planned another pasta dish. A warm meal like this is so simple but satisfying — especially on a cold day. My kids are all smiles whenever they see me prepping the thermos for pasta!
LUNCH MENU #18
– linguine with marinara sauce
-cheese and garlic bread stick
– string cheese
-carrots with homemade dip
– squeezable fruit puree*
– To make the homemade dip stir 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/2 cup sour cream together.
– Preheat the insulated bowl by adding boiling water to it, pouring it out and adding hot pasta and sauce. It really does stay warm for hours!
*Awhile back I received the fruit puree in the picture as part of a sample pack of new Earth’s Best products to try out. I think this pomegranate cranberry apple puree is actually for babies and toddlers, but my kids and I all love it, so into the lunch bag it goes! They will be available in stores in March 2014.
