These Meatball and Pasta Skewers are a fun way to get your kids excited about dinner! Not only is this a kid-friendly dinner, it’s also a great way to serve pasta at a party.
I have found that two things seem to always make food more appealing to my kids: Skewers and dipping. Food is somehow more delicious when it’s on a stick as far as they are concerned, so I wanted to bring that idea to their standard pasta dinner. It’s not pictured here, but you can serve these pasta skewers with marinara or alfredo sauce to cover your dipping bases too.
This is hardly even a recipe. Just gather these things and start assembling:
- Whole wheat cheese tortellini, cooked according to package directions and tossed with olive oil or butter
- Frozen meatballs (store bought or homemade), heated in microwave
- Vegetables your kids will eat (I chose grape tomatoes and steamed broccoli)
- Marinara and/or alfredo sauce for dipping
Quick dinner ideas like these are perfect for back-to-school time when schedules get hectic. Want a couple more great meals for school nights? How about these?
