Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Shifting from spaghetti with jarred sauce to a lighter sauce made from fresh tomatoes is a good step in helping your little ones appreciate the flavors of fresh vegetables. In this dish, summer-ripe tomatoes are best, but grape tomatoes will do the trick year-round. Roasting tomatoes at a high temperature brings out their natural sweetness, and a topping of salty goat cheese (or parmesan cheese for pickier eaters) adds the perfect balance.
