John's Dreams of Spring Pasta

John (my almost 5 year old) and I were looking at a magazine and saw a toddler pasta we decided to give it a try for dinner with a few family twists. I hope that you try it and enjoy.

1 cup of diced broccoli
1 cup of diced red pepper
1 cup of diced carrots
1 cup of frozen peas
1 cup of frozen corn
3 cups of ruffles pasta
1 tablespoon of butter
1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 pound of steamed shrimp
3 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon of lemon zest

Bring water to a boil and cook pasta for 10 minutes. Drain and add all other ingredients to pan. cook for 5 minutes, add pasta, stir in cheese, add lemon zest, and serve. This is a quick, healthy, and light meal that cooks up in 15 minutes, and is super kid friendly. I hope that you enjoy your dinner, I know that we did.
