Kids’ Spaghetti PD Premium Recipe

2018-08-07
Kid's Spaghetti

My pantry is always stocked with the three main ingredients to make Kids’ Spaghetti. This kid-approved, fast-to-the-table, pressure-cooked, one-pot mildly seasoned pasta dish isn’t just for kids. It is my personal go-to recipe when I’m in need of a simple, homey, effortless, instant and protective noodle bowl. Take your pick of pasta shapes, but for me, it is broken up spaghetti that takes me back to my childhood. I quickly assembled lunch with the assistance of my niece and nephews and not a noodle was left behind. We played all afternoon at the beach and they asked for Kids’ Spaghetti again for dinner. They selected the noodle shape, measured the cooking water and I assembled the quick mix sauce. Spice Sauce was on the table to add an optional new twist. Harley (10), Johnny (8) and Tony (7) joined us in spicing up this easy prep meal, served with handheld asparagus spears, along with chopped salad tossed with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing and a side of sliced peaches.

    We just started making this recipe, and it’s a huge hit in our home — a one-pot meal that is quick and easy and tastes incredible! We’ll probably be making it once or twice a week from now on!! The only problem: Like many of your other recipes, it depends on your plant-based broth mix; however, we’re running low, and I understand that since we’re in the midst of the pandemic, you don’t know when it can be manufactured again. Can you give us a workaround that is at least good enough to use in your dishes, even if it’s not the actual composition for your broth mix (so that your commercial product is protected)? Not that we’d have the time to make it ourselves anyway – we’d still be buying yours if it were available! But it’s not, yet we still want to be able to make these dishes … can you help us?

    I made this recipe with bow tie pasta, broccoli and mushrooms. I added 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast to the milk mixture. Turned out delicious! I don’t know why I waited so long to give it a try! Going into the monthly rotation for sure!

    This is my go to meal when I am like hmm I am starving what should I eat. I made this last night and remembered I was out of PD Broth Mix. I am going to have to buy more. 🙂

    Super fast easy lazy vegan, oil free, nut free, dairy free, food additive free pasta dinner feast. I didn’t even have to chop any veggies (although I did eat a sliced tomato on the side) Protective Diet’s Kids Spaghetti is becoming a new staple in my house. I got everything, except the PD broth, at Trader Joes on my way home from work; organic spaghetti, fresh peas, mixed greens and broccoli florets. Dinner is ready for tomorrow too. Yay leftovers, and this dish is great cold too. I topped it all with fermented hot sauce.

    This meal is extremely comforting and as the title states, it’s definitely a “Kid’s Spaghetti “….I definitely preferred mine “adult style” usually with Spice Sauce or my reliable King Sauce. Great way to use up leftover veggies you have in the fridge! It’s great for those days when you are attending a billion kids’ activities and would like to have a decent sit down family meal at home that is waaaaay easier (and healthier!) than going to a drive thru!!!

    Picky kid approved!! I’m so excited that my picky son actually loved this. I used broccoli, but I riced it up in my food processor, so it wasn’t in big chunks. I added frozen peas and the nutritional yeast as add ins. He loved it and added hot sauce to it. Can’t wait to try different combos! This was such a quick and easy meal. It’ll be fantastic when I’m in a rush to get dinner on the table. It cooked up perfectly! Definitely going on our “regular” list. <3 <3 <3

    This is a fantastic recipe! It reminds me of a one dish creamy casserole from pre PD days. It was easy and fast. I will definitely make this often!

    Mine came out more dry than I expected. Next time i may double the sauce. I made some Country sawtell gravy & it was gobbled up.
