St. Patrick's Day Lucky Pasta Salad
Pasta, Italian salad dressing, Parmesan cheese, green pepper, bowl, colander, knife
Cook, drain, and rinse pasta with cold water -- spinach pasta makes this dish extra green. Then pour the cooked pasta into a large bowl. Help your child pour Italian dressing in, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese, and mix it all together. To avoid a mess, use a very large bowl, or if you have one with a lid, put the lid on and let your child shake it up. Cut off the top of the pepper and remove the seeds. Then cut thin crosswise slices across the pepper. Each slice looks like a 4 leaf clover. Cut straight pieces for stems. Serve pasta on plates or bowls and have your child arrange a pepper clover and stem on top of each pasta serving.
