Lately I’ve struggled with finding delicious and healthy dishes that my son will eat. This dish is every thing that he loves.

It’s sweet with a little spice and perfect finger food. If only I had a video of him downing noodles. He slurps them up like there’s no tomorrow.

The best thing is this dish is packed with fiber. The pasta alone has 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of plant protein in every serving. You’d never know it while enjoying it because it’s so amazing!

Dreamfields pasta is my solution to picky eaters that cringe at the thought of whole grain pasta. Everything thing about the taste is like the traditional white pasta, but it has the nutritional benefits of the whole grain pasta. Parents of picky eaters unite!

This pasta is so superhero. And yes, I totally just made superhero an adjective. I do that. Just ask my husband.

  1. I love lasagna, but my husband won’t eat anything but spaghetti, so I don’t get to have it very often. ;)

  2. My favorite pasta is soba noodles. It is expensive, so I mostly try to make my own, esp b/c I like it 100% buckwheat. I luv whole wheat pasta, too!

  3. My favorite is cavatappi – it’s great with pesto! I also really like thin spaghetti; it’s a great combination of all the good angel hair and spaghetti have to offer :)

  4. My favorite Pasta is Angel Hair although I would like to try the lasagna but they do not sell in stores where I live :(. The Green bowl looks healthy and yummy

  5. I am looking for fibromyalgia food that I can endorse. This fits the bill and I will try it. May I also recommend organic edamames, as the commercial ones are probably GMO and a food that is highly treated with chemicals.
    I love Barilla Plus, it is very similar to Dreamfields. I can’t eat regular pasta anymore.
    It would probably be delicious with soba noodles too.

    1. Hi Beth, I only use organic edamame and actually all the vegetables here, I used organic. I tend to not state organic in recipes so that the recipes are more attainable for everyone. Also, I agree that it would be a great dish made with any type of noodle. :)

  6. I love Penne for no other reason than that is so fun to play with, er, I mean eat! WE eat Dreamfields all the time. My husband doesn’t know it’s good for him ;-)

  7. What a great idea for picky toddlers! Anything to sneak in some more nutrition is a win in my book! Love all the green in this dish!
