Ferris Wheel Meal

Mural Meal: The Pasta Ferris Wheel

Every babe loves a carnival, but this one is free of fat laden funnel cakes and cotton candy. Instead, this fare is full of nourishing bites that will fill a tiny tummy with nibbles from most parts of the food pyramid.

Boil up a pan full of pasta and add marinara sauce to the cooked noodles. Take a bushel of asparagus and put them in a baking dish. Toss them in olive oil, minced garlic and a dash of salt. Bake them in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. While they get toasty, cook up some corn, dice a few carrots and find a cookie for dessert. Place the sphere shaped pastas in a circle around the plate. Lay four asparagus spears down as the "spokes" of the wheel. Sprinkle the corn along the bottom for the base of the wheel. Arrange the diced carrots on the edge of the plate for decoration. Leave some space for a yummy cookie sun spot.
