Simple Pastas ~ Cheesy Rotini


The only lunchbox item that I am sure of getting finished by my daughter has to be the simple cheesy pasta.  It is her favorite and so I decided to go with this dish even though I had other recipe ready for today. She prefers to taste only pasta and cheese in her dish and nothing else. I therefore follow the basic, simple recipe with no  addition of healthy / fancy ingredients. The Mac n cheese I posted earlier being her favorite though I resort to boxed Mac n cheese sometimes for the convenience. Today my daughter was in mood for Mac n Cheese for lunch but I had only rotini and shell pastas in my pantry. I chose to go with the former as it was tri colored one and would look more appealing to the kid. I am just giving the basic recipe here but you can jazz it up with the addition of veggies / meat / spices etc. Or go with your favorite sauce.

Ingredients:
12 oz rotini
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese powder (Or grated cheddar cheese)

Method:
* Cook rotini pasta al dente, according to the package directions. (I didn't use salt.)
* Add milk and cheese powder and cook for a minute or so, until a sauce is formed. Turn off the stove. Serve it with any sauce of your choice or with ketchup.

Yummy looking pasta. I recently bought Vermont cheddar Cheese powder from King Arthur and my son liked the pasta I made the same way you did here. But its always a hit or miss with my 5 year old can't be sure if he's going to like it when I make it again.
