Cooking for kids? Introduce flavours slowly to children. When introducing a new flavour – like parmesan. you can encourage children to try it at different temperatures: cold from the fridge and warm on the pasta. It may take many exposures for a child to learn to like a new flavour or texture. Making this recipe with kids? Ask the child to contribute by helping with these steps:
  • 2: Separate the mint leaves.
  • 5: Add the chicken to the linguine and combine.
  • 6: Serve and garnish their dish.
