Feed a Cold, With Pasta

With colds and cold weather about, we serve up comfort food—with a slightly healthy bent. And in our family, comfort food means pasta. The healthy bits are provided by broccoli, which is also comforting since we all like it. We try to slip some squash past the kids, disguised as spaghetti, but fail to fool them. Darn it.
We are well into the cold season now. The baby is finally recovering from a two week cold. Now our son is coming down with the same thing. He still insisted on going to school—he is not that old just yet. We let him go since he was just hoarse. Somehow our daughter has yet to get sick this season—good thing too, she received her first sleepover invitation today.
