My son and daughter both take a lunch box (bocs bwyd as we say here in Wales!) to school with them for lunchtime. I tend to find myself stuck in the usual rut of making sandwiches to fill their boxes though, which must get a little boring despite the variety of fillings!
Both of them enjoy pasta so I decided to try a pasta lunch instead! I cooked up some pasta and once it was cool I popped some in each of their tubs. Then I stirred in a teaspoon of cold passata sauce (any type of tomato and herb sauce works well).
Then I added some chopped ham and chopped cherry tomatoes. Finally, I sprinkled over some grated cheese.
A yummy alternative to sandwiches in the kids lunch box (or in your own)!
