Kid-Made Chicken Parmesan Lasagna #RGLasagna

Kid-Made Red Gold LasagnaMost kids enjoy helping in the kitchen. While they help you cook, you can talk to them about healthy foods. After seeing my kids fall in love with MasterChef Junior, I thought it was time for my daughter to start cooking. With a little assistance from me, she had fun using her math skills and applying them to make a lasagna that Garfield would devour. I highly recommend you doing this with your children, at least if they are 8 years-old or older. Her confidence in the kitchen has risen, and I enjoyed seeing her shine. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that she will start making some meals in the future. 😉Chicken Parmesan Lasagna Ingredients
