Popcorn flavored pasta. At Last.

Popcorn Flavored Pasta! Genius!!

Lately it’s been impossible to figure out what Dash will eat.  He seems to insist that he can live on cheerios, berries and popcorn.  Occasionally, he will accept a toasted cheese sandwich.

If he’s feeling generous with his time and energies.

Tonight, as he was pointing at the popcorn bucket and indicating, insistantly, that he would like popcorn for dinner, it

occurred to me…. all the things he likes on popcorn,  could possibly, be put on top of pasta. Would he eat it… probably not, but it was worth a try.

I boiled a hand full of pasta. Drained, and added a hunk of butter to the warm pan.  Added some garlic, a tiny tiny b

it of black pepper and some Parmesan cheese (Yes, we like interesting popcorn).  I added some sour cream to make all the bits stick together.  And the kicker? I sprinkled nutritional yeast over the top of it JUST LIKE THE POPCORN.

And he devored it.  All of it.  And? He wanted more.

I feel like I have solved world hunger! On a very local level.
