Protocol Droid Pasta

Wanna guess whose idea this was? (It's supposed to resemble C-3PO, in case you can't tell. And if you don't know who C-3PO is, I applaud you.)

Kiddo had Spring Break this week, so since Friday is my day off, it was just him and me at home for a while. I asked him what he thought we should do, and he decided we should cook something together, but not just anything--something out of this Star Wars cook book. We eventually settled on Protocol Droid Pasta, which is very little cooking, mostly assembly. And I wouldn't consider this a kid's recipe, because there wasn't a whole lot I could have him do. But the end result sorta came out like it was supposed to, except for the fact that I didn't have any turmeric with which to dye the cauliflower yellow. And my pile of pasta wasn't shaped like a head.

As far as difficulty goes, there isn't any. And it tastes pretty simple, too. I ended up stirring in more pine nuts--rather than the two the recipe calls for--which added some texture and flavor.

I'm not going to be able to share this recipe, because it isn't available anywhere except for in the book, but I can tell you what's in it: tri-color spaghetti, chicken stock, parmesan, and cauliflower and pine nuts as garnish. Then then face plates are sourdough bread brushed with olive oil and dusted with garlic salt. Tada!
