Chef Carson's niece doesn't really care for meat, so he created this baked pasta primavera for her. It's loaded with colorful veggies and when this comes out of the oven, hot and bubbling with melted mozzarella cheese, she's all smiles. Our chefs create tempting, balanced kids’ meals with a focus on whole grains, lean proteins, and always lots of vegetables. We aim for choices parents will feel good about and kids will love.

Use a smaller pasta, and cut the broccoli into smaller pieces -- for kids' mouths.

My daughter eats this but does not really like the leftovers. Not sure if it is a bit too spicy for her.

perfectly adequate. ordered for adult lunch portion. not sure kids would like all the veggies (there are lots and they are very al dente), we were fine with that though. not enough sauce to really make the dish come together, but a nice light meal.

It needs more sauce.

Nice and simple. Lots of good veggies that were fresh on top. The sauce was really flavorful and tasty. Not a fan of the cheese topping that came with, should be a Parmesan cheese instead.

This would have been five stars if there were more sauce. It tasted just like plain pasta and vegetables....but other than that it is delicious!!!!!

Very good, but needs about twice as much sauce!!
5 Stars
The perfect dish to warm up in your oven. Maybe spritz it wish some water so the noodles do not harden in the oven as the cheese melts. Otherwise, delicious and well made.

Pasta a little overcooked kids didn't eat much

Pasta and veggies arrived a little undercooked which allowed it to be perfect when reheated. I put the sauce on the pasta then heated in the microwave and it came out perfect.
