Was shopping with my little girl at Carrefour and when saw that they sell BOW TIE pasta and I just have to buy it. Saw the use of Bow Tie pasta in many of the kids cooking recipes so I just have to buy and try it. Have been looking around for it in NTUC Fairprice and Giant but just can't find it. So, today, I could a Bow Tie Pasta Salad for the kids and they love it. My Baby Girl actually ate the whole plate herself without me feeding her and my boy was playing and eat the pasta, he was imagining the pasta as a butterfly, a bat, a fish etc...I'm so gald it was a hit, even my hubby. I cook quite a large pot and was thinking maybe I can serve this for lunch tomorrow but ended up my hubby just gobble up everything, he say it was so appetising. YES! This is definitely a keeper, here's the recipe, roughly as I just add the ingredient based on what I have and tasted.
