Whenever I cook pasta at dinnertime, I make a little extra for the next day’s school lunches. This lunchbox features leftover cold pasta tossed with leftover roasted veggies and a little pesto sauce (but you could use any healthy salad dressing). If you’re looking for an easy pesto recipe, you can try my Popeye Pesto (in my cookbook, Real Food for Real Families at p. 74) or my Kale Pesto on the blog. Pesto takes about 5 minutes to make and freezes really well (I freeze in very small containers containing a few tablespoons each so I can defrost and toss with pasta or roasted veggies). I rounded the lunch out with local blueberries, snap peas and one of my Chewy Cocoa Granola Bars for a healthy treat.
