There's an art to eating pasta!


I'm 75% Italian.


Which means that my children are....I don't know....a little less than 50% Italian.


Which also means that we eat ALOT of pasta.


Linguine, rigatoni, fettuccine, spaghetti, angel hair.....ALOT.


And, yet, I can't seem to teach my children the proper way to eat it.


I've tried. Many times.


Yesterday for dinner I made whole wheat Angel hair pasta with a yummy creamy tomato sauce with shrimp and mushrooms. After watching my children try to eat it for several minutes I said...


"Here.....please allow me to.....once again.....show you children how to eat pasta...."


I proceed to demonstrate and Dreamy Smurf says....


"I like my way better!"

Very cute! I love watching kids eat pasta. They seem to attack it with the same energy that they go after life with.
Happy WW!

Ha ha!! It's hard eating pasta sometimes, especially spaghetti! =)

At least they are enjoying their food. I'm all for any way they want to eat it as long as they eat it - ah life with a finicky eater.

i learned (from German parents) to eat pasta with a fork spinning pasta on a spoon....is that right?

It ended up being too hard for me, though, and now i cheat by *gasp* breaking the pasta in thirds before adding it to the water, which is a little bit better than eating it with knife and fork, right?

Those pictures are cute. If your kids ate pasta perfectly, they'd be missing on fun, and you'd be missing out on those pictures!

Very cute pics!! I can hardly get my son to eat pasta. All he likes is meat and veggies for dinner.

I love the photo op in pasta eating. At least they are using their forks (most of the time!)

I wish my kids would eat pasta. We are going through the worst phase of Picky Eater Syndrome.

Adorable photos :)

Tammy, your children do not know how to twirl?! As a fellow Italian, I'm shocked.

Mine neither, but I like watching yours try!
