  • 1 tbsp oil (extra virgin olive oil, avocado, or vegetable)
  • 2 (14 ounce) alphabet pasta (or other la moderna noodles)
  • 2 (8 ounce) tomato sauce
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tbsp chicken bouillon


  • Add 1 tablespoons olive oil to a large skillet, fry the alphabet pasta over medium heat. Keep stirring so that the noodles don't burn.
  • Once the pasta is turning golden pour in the tomato sauce and water. Stir to combine. Add in the chicken bouillon. Stir until completely dissolved and mixed in. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low and allow to simmer. Allow to simmer until the pasta is tender, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Serve and enjoy!


*If you want to make this more of a pasta consistency, which is what I do for my littlest kids (it's easier to eat) simply reduce the amount of water to 6 cups. As the noodles cooks it will soak up the liquid and be more of a pasta.
