Princess Pasta --Kids' Cooking Contest Winner!

This week's recipe was submitted to us by 4 year old Zoraya in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Zoraya's Mom says, "This is my daughter's favorite recipe and in fact was created just to match her taste buds. This is the first time she has ever cooked a dish from beginning to end and she was very proud of herself. The whole time she was preparing the dish, she kept adding commentaries as if she were giving a presentation or doing a show. "

Princess Pasta

Tools needed:

Pot to boil water
Pasta Strainer
Cutting board
Cutting knife
Tablespoon Measurer
Teaspoon Measurer
1/2 Teaspoon Measurer
1/4 Teaspoon Measurer


4 oz. Thin Spaghetti
2 oz. Black Olives, sliced, drained
1 pint (10 oz) grape tomatoes
14 oz. Artichoke hearts, drained
2 tbsp plus 1/4 tsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp plus 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Butter
Pot of Water

First, fill your pot up with water. Then have Mom set the pot to boil on high heat. Next you add a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil to the water. Once the water starts to boil, add the spaghetti. While the pasta is cooking, drain the artichokes, cut them into quarters and set aside or ask Mom to cut them for you. Next, drain the olives and set them aside as well. Then rinse the tomatoes and pat them dry. Season them with salt, if you wish, and then set aside. When the pasta has cooked to the desired tenderness, hold the strainer handle while Mom strains it and then leave the pasta in the pasta strainer. Have Mom remove the pot from the heat so you can add the butter, and once it has melted, add the pasta back to the pot. Have Mom lower the heat to low, and return the pot to the heat. Now add the artichokes, tomatoes and olives. Toss all of the ingredients with parmesan cheese and the remaining salt and olive oil til everything is warmed through. Now it is ready to serve to any Prince or Princess!

Prep time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

I wish my girls would eat this. Maddie would eat all the tomatoes and Miriam would eat the pasta.
