Whole Wheat Pasta Frittata Shapes

Shapes are always fun for kids... OK, and for grown ups too! Here's a fast and easy way to use up leftover pasta for a nutritious lunch or dinner. 

Coat a frying pan with a little oil. Toss in pasta. Whisk together about 3-4 eggs, salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese. Pour over pasta and cook on low, covered, for about 10 min. If the eggs aren't cooking on top, I'll also sometimes broil the whole pan for about 5 min. Slide out onto a cutting board and use cookie cutters to make shapes. I like to serve this with tomatoes. It's also great dipped in pesto! Yum!

Chicken Taco Cups

Annie just loves to make her own tacos. And she loves little cups. And pink. So what better use for some sale priced silicone muffin cups then some chicken taco ingredients? I got 6 pink and 6 brown cups- perfect for Annie and Max. I filled each cup with a different topper and served with tortilla chips (we are out of tortillas). The kids loved it! 

I think these cups have endless possibilities... perfect for "deconstructed" meals... assembly optional!
