Today I am excited to be posting as a contributor for The Best Blog Recipes! I am sharing my Turkey Rotini Bake, which a great weeknight dinner recipe that kids and adults alike really enjoy.
Do your kids love pasta? Mine do, especially my youngest, who is actually a bit of a picky eater and would live on nothing but pasta, biscuits, and Life cereal if I would let him!
Pasta is so versatile and easy, and the kids love it, so it really lends itself to all kinds of quick and yummy weeknight meals. I have been making this family favorite for a few years now, and in fact it was one of the first meals I ever blogged about!
Recently, I looked at what I had written back in early 2013 to refresh my memory on the recipe, and as the page loaded to my screen, I practically fell off my chair I was laughing so hard! WOW, what a difference a year makes! So I decided that I needed to do a complete overhaul and get that old post off of my blog.
Here is a little before and after collage to show you what I am talking about!
Do you think I have made a little progress with my photography? Just a bit, LOL! It is nice to realize that my efforts to improve my pictures have made a difference, even if my efforts to improve my younger son’s food repetoire have not quite made as much progress. Oh well, I won’t give up. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming (like Dory in Finding Nemo)! If I keep trying, maybe someday he will even like Brussels sprouts!
Anyway, this Turkey Rotini Bake tastes as good as the (new) picture looks, so I definitely recommend it for a great weeknight meal for your family! Visit my contributor post on The Best Blog Recipes today for the full post!
