In the Kitchen With Dad: Chicken Alfredo

Disclosure:  This post is in collaboration with Barilla. All opinions of apps and companies that help me complete DIY projects are my own. 

Cooking is important to me. I like great food, and that’s something that I’m sharing with my kids in the kitchen. Yes, we’re all busy, but there’s always enough time to make sure that they eat good, healthy food.

That’s also why we love Barilla pasta. It’s the perfect meal-time solution for on-the-go families.

  • Barilla offers perfection: stress-free combos
  • It takes great, filled with taste, texture and flavors
  • Barilla is also about simplicity with variety, with 38 pasta cuts and 14 sauce varieties

But, hey, there’s one reason that really overwhelms any other… That’s the fact that my boys are growing and eating like crazy. I want to make them food that they enjoy, but also combinations that will support their nutritional needs. I’m able to do that with Barilla.

Back To School…

By now, we’re all back to school, and we’ve already started to get into some kind of daily routine. It’s still hard to believe that the summer has flown by and that it’s time to get back to homework, school books, and uniforms. In the crush and chaos of our school days lives, it’s become even more important to captures those moments. Yep, they’re fleeting, but they are worth it.

Fortunately, we’re still able to experience some of the best moments while in the kitchen, particularly around cooking with Barilla. It’s the best time to share what’s been happening each day. While the water is boiling and the veggies are steaming, there are moments to check in and connect as a family, even before we gather around the dinner table.

Here’s a quick recipe that we recently made together in the kitchen:
