My kids liked make your own pizza night. We use low cal pitas as the base, we can then do a maranaria sauce, reduced fat cheeses, veggies.

For the kids we buy turkey peperoni and for the parents we top with proscitto.

I make this once a week, my kids and DH love it. Change up the shape of your pasta to keep it interesting !! I use ziti, wagon wheels, seashells, twisty's , spaghetti, flat linguine etc etc

KID FRIENDLY PASTA DISH

1 pound your favorite shape pasta
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 small green pepper chopped really small
1 small onion chopped really small
2 cloves garlic chopped small
1 jar your favorite pasta sauce
1 teaspoon dried basil

Cook pasta to box directions

While pasta is boiling, saute green pepper, onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil. Cook about 5 minutes then add the ground turkey and stir often to make ground turkey almost crumble.

Drain pasta, then place pasta back into the pasta pot
.
Add the turkey mixture to the pasta pot and add the sauce and seasonings. Stir well

Serve with some parmasan cheese if you like. Add a salad too. My kids love chopped romaine lettuce, croutons and ceasar dressing for a kid friendly ceasar salad. ( no anchovies no slices of romano cheese )

Have your kids help. They are old enough to wash lettuce and tear it into bite size pieces. I always found if my kids helped to cook, they would eat it !!

What are your normal recipes?

I'm thinking to allow your husband to use spices as condiments, like a shot of tabasco or powdered spices in a shaker bottle, or to get him a good sauce while the daughters use ketchup.

For cooked-in spices, get a small frying pan and just transfer his portion to the extra cooking vessel, or cook in two smaller dishes for baked stuff.

I try to seek recipes that my whole family will like and am usually successful but have hit a wall where the meal is usually too bland for my husband or too spicy for my daughters. Please help!!
