A delicious pasta that you'll want to make again and again because it's packed with nutrients that no one (even picky eaters) will find out.

My son Max is very picky about what he will eat. He does not eat green vegetables (and in general anything green), he does not eat peas, tomato, onion and of course garlic. But he doesn't just eat this particular pasta. He eats it with great appetite and joy even though it contains everything he does not like.

Some will say that it is not right to hide vegetables in food and to "deceive" our children in such ways (I have been told so, that's why I mention it). I will tell all of them to mind their own business. I will hide as many vegetables as I want in my child's food now that he is still young and does not understand their value and the reasons he should eat them.

Tips and Substitutions

Personally, this time I used pasta with vegetables that I had brought from Pelion. You can use any kind of pasta you want.

If you don't have peas, add any other vegetable you have. Carrots can also be added to the recipe.

You can add some coconut milk to the blender along with your vegetables.
