Instant Pot Carrot Sauce Pasta | Toka Chef Recipe

posted by Vidhya , March 06, 2018

It's time for the toka chef recipe, and today I am going to share a pasta dish but with a twist! Instead of regular tomato and pesto sauce, how about using carrots for the sauce? And that's precisely what I am going to share today - a recipe for kid friendly carrot sauce pasta!

In March, Toka Box is all about spring and how to start your veggie garden. Both the Junior and the Explorer boxes cover this theme, and kids get to learn about spring gardening and climbers, creepers and root vegetables. Check out our Toka Box site for more information and also about our upcoming boxes. Don't forget to subscribe!

Toka Chef Moment

In this month's Toka Box, we spent more time discussing different types of vegetables. We kicked off the seed starting process and how plants make their food. We were playing a small quiz where the kiddo identified if the vegetable that I said was a creeper, climber or a root vegetable. Also, I was explaining the nutrients and vitamins in each veggie. Utilize this time and help your kids understand the significance of vegetables.

I prepared this carrot sauce pasta with the instant pot, but I have explained the traditional stove-top method on the notes section as well. Here comes the simple pasta recipe.

Kiddo liked this very much, and he asked to prepare it again for his lunch box. He wrote this on the roaring lunch menu so that I won't forget. That menu card craft was part of our June 2017 Toka Box! :-)
