I figured I would test this out myself. I had some carrots on hand and thought hmmmmm Chat Icon maybe carrots would work instead of butternut squash. Well, it did work! I steamed & pureed the carrots and added them to the cheese packet in a separate container. the mixed the carrot/cheese mixture into the pasta.

Gracie ate it up! Chat Icon Chat Icon In fact, she loved it. She kept saying "YUMMMMMMMMM" after every bite. I had to try it myself and it was really yummy, to my surprise.

I am now a deceptively delicious / sneaky chef believer! Chat Icon

I admit it was pretty good and you really could not taste the carrot in it. In fact, it made the cheese sauce creamier. if you use a 1/2 cup of pureed carrots (about a half bag of the baby carrots) per box, then you really cannot taste it. I hope it works for your 10yr old.

Great idea! Glad she liked it!!

I think this whole 'hiding veggies' thing is such a good idea, even if kids/you/hubby Chat Icon like veggies. You can't get too many veggies, you know? I love veggies, but I'm going to start doing this even to our food so we get even more veggies!
