Caprese Pasta

Out of a kid’s cookbook came a wonderful fresh dinner. Kirk had picked up a copy of Cooking Class: 57 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Make (and Eat!), for Walker to look over.

Chapter six is “My First Dinners”, a collection of fun recipes, ranging from easy (1 spoon) to harder (3 spoons) recipes. Honestly, these are adults friendly for making and for taste buds as well.
