I have some pasta addicts in my house! Do you have little critters with food addictions too? I actually made a huge pasta and pizza party for my finicky shark’s 2nd birthday years ago, because he loves both so much!

Nothing is better in a lunch box than pasta! It’s soft and chewy, full of flavor, filling and delicious. I found a simple way to make my famished fish and finicky shark a special dish any day of the week. And it’s microwavable. And completely lunch box ready in 20 minutes!

First I heated up 6 lasagna noodles, all broken up, in 1 3/4 cups of water in the microwave for 12 minutes. Of course I put the noodles in a large 2 quart microwave safe dish. I stirred the broken noodles halfway through the cook time.

Then I tossed in some simple ingredients: 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese, 3/4 cup of cheesy alfredo sauce, and 3/4 cup of frozen corn kernels.

I stirred it all those good things together.

And drizzled it with an additional 2 Tb of alfredo sauce. Then I put it back in the microwave and heated the casserole on high for 3 minutes.

Then I portioned the lasagna into 3 lunch box thermos containers and packed them in my 3 boys’ lunch boxes.
