Kid’s Meal

A “Kids’ Meal” in my house has a totally different meaning than the one advertised at McDonalds. At my house it is my spaghetti. I have yet to receive a complaint about this meal. Tonight I am taking you on a pictorial of the making of the “Kid’s Meal”.

Let start with the sides which my darling daughter made.
Cheese filled crescent rolls.
For dessert she made walnut and double chocolate brownies
(my favorite)

My spaghetti sauce must begin with beautiful spinach form the garden….
Just kidding…frozen is fine

Toss about a cup of frozen spinach into the blender.
Next, one jar of spaghetti sauce.

Now add 1 tablespoonful of ….
and 1 can of….

You can add you favorite seasoning here. I like to add garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Sometimes crushed red pepper or parmesan cheese.
Using a 1 cup measure…
get some of this…yes the pasta cooking liquid and pour it in the blender. Set an additinal cup aside.
Pre-cooked ground meat already cooked as part as my freezer cooking routine makes this meal a super time saver.
(more about that at a later date)

Blend everything on puree or low setting.

I like to still be able to identify the spinach. When I first began making this sauce I would puree until the spinach turend the sauce green. Either way taste great.

Drain the noodles. Add the meat noodles and sauce to a large pot. Mix well and serve. You could also omit the mixing of the meat, pasta and sauce and simply serve the sauce over the meat and noodles.

Served with bread and dessert.
The perfect kids meal without the toy.
