Kid food day 4: Clam alphabet pasta

This is actually one of my son's favorites. If you think your kids will balk at the clams, try tuna or chicken chunks.


Alphabet pasta with clams

7 or 8 oz alphabet pasta
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon flour
7-ounce can minced clams
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon basil

Cook pasta. Heat butter and cook garlic 1 min. Stir in flour and juice from clams. Bring to a full boil, stirring. Add clams and spices; simmer 5 min. Season with salt and pepper; combine with pasta.


  1. I think this with Tuna sounds yum.

  2. I been meaning to tell you that I love the ideas posted. My kid would balk at the clams, but I think she'll love sticky chickies.
