Spaghetti with Hummus Patty for Kids Lunch Box

BM # 41  Week 2   Day 1

As a a kid I always waned to eat in the school canteen, but mom would pack some kind of stuffed toast for me. Times have changed we want our children to eat really healthy, not only that the school authorities keep a check on the lunch boxes. No junk, that is what they always say.Well it has been years since I packed a kids lunch box, but if I were to do I would pack something that gets finished. I made this lunch box and my 16 year old loved it.

The lunch box had.. 
Spaghetti in Red Sauce with Fresh Basil
Hummus and Olive Patty 
Herbed cheese 
(store bought) 
(store bought) 

Spaghetti in Red Sauce and Fresh Basil
1 cup spaghetti, boiled
Few cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 can tomatoes
2 tbsp ketchup
Salt to taste
Fresh basil leaves
Saute the garlic in olive oil.
Add the canned tomatoes, cook till there is no moisture.
Add tomato ketchup and boiled spaghetti.
Toss well.
Add torn basil leaves.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese.
I did not add any chilly, but a few drops of chilly sauce could be added.

Hummus Patty 
2 slices bread
2 tsp hummus
Few olives, chopped

Combine everything and mix well with hands.
Form a patty and roast it on a non stick pan.

This kind of lunch box can be prepared in a jiffy, the store bought things can be packed in advance too.
