Mom's Secret Weapon!

This is a great nutritious kids' meal. What looks like a simple bright tomato sauce is actually loaded with vegetables pureed into it. It's put on ziti (tubes of pasta that are fun to eat) and the whole thing is topped with fresh Belfiore mozzarella, ricotta, and Parmesan cheeses. The dish is served with a small iceberg lettuce wedge and yogurt-ranch dressing.

There was a massive ball of clumped cheese the size of that took up half the dish

The kids didn't liken-'too much sauce and hardly any pasta.

Yummy and a nice sized portion.

My 6 year old really enjoyed this. Would love to see a kid's dish like this but with some ground chicken or beef for a little protein. Also, radishes aren't a big hit with most kids. How about cucumber or cherry tomatoes?

Simple and cheesy. Just like the music on the radio. Except this is way better.

A wonderful dish for the kids! The sauce was not overpowering, however we could have done without the radish.
5 Stars
What can I say. Kid ate it. 5 stars.
3 Stars
Just so so. Would prefer more nutritious salad. Sauce was just ok. Lots of mozzarella which was yummy. Might order again.
1 Stars
Disappointing, the portion size is tiny & one small piece of mozzarella. The flavor is good but this will barely feed my 21 month old! Sad that they must have downsized the portion based on previous reviews stating that it was a hearty serving.
5 Stars
Don't change a thing about the pasta, sauce, cheese. It was fabulous!! Sauce tasted great. Lots of fresh mozzarella - sooo gooey & yumy. I'll definitely order again! Plz make a more nutritious salad, i.e. darker greens or carrots, etc.

My daughter loved it!

Both of my kids loved it. Perhaps a little more sauce would do, please.
5 Stars
My 4 year old loved this. Very generous portions, which meant a bit of left-overs. Which I enjoyed and also loved. Will definitely order again.

Me and my 16 month old LOVE this dish. It is three portions for his little belly.
5 Stars
My 18 month old devoured this dish. She's a pasta fiend but pretty particular about her flavors. This was a perfect blend of sweet and savory that had her hooked from the first bite. Can't wait for this to come back again.
4 Stars
Great Dish!! Salad was not a hit...
5 Stars
Pasta was delicious and portion was generous - I would happily eat this myself! One dinner could have easily served both my kids (2 and 6); with 2 dinners, my kindergartener will have plenty left over for tomorrow's school lunch. Thumbs up!

Flavor was awesome, but not enough sauce. My toddler sucked the sauce off and you could tell that he wanted more. The mozzarella was a really nice touch. Portion was a bit small, but if it goes on a FLASH SALE, would order again.
