Delilicious: Countdown to Christmas Pasta

Red and green scream Christmas so deck your children's dinner plates out in the festive colors for an edible holiday countdown. After a long day at the mall or out building snowmen, this flavorful pasta dish requires just a handful of ingredients and it's easy on the budget (more money for gifts!) and simple enough to enlist your lil elves in the preparations.

Simmer a sauté pan of San Marzano tomato sauce and pour it over numerical pasta, then top with grated Parmesan cheese. Mix mealtime with pleasure by asking your tots to find the numbers of days until Santa comes in their pasta! If you don't celebrate Christmas, you can pour the same sauce over any number of seasonal shaped pastas or just skip the game portion.
