Easy Broccoli Pasta Salad Recipe (Perfect for Toddlers)


My daughter True loves a broccoli pasta dish from California Chicken Cafe, a place we eat often. I decided to make a few adjustments to the recipe, like adding carrots and micro shopping the broccoli, making it easier for True to eat and digest. This recipe is the perfect side dish for a family get together and compliments salads perfectly. If you have a toddler, they will love it!


  • 1/2 bag of cooked and cooled spiral pasta

  • 2 medium size heads of broccoli finally chopped and all the stems removed

  • A handful of shredded carrots also finally shopped

  • 3-4 tbsp of Ranch dressing

  • 4-5 tbsp of Italian dressing


  • This couldn’t be easier…. mix all the ingredients in a bowl and it is ready!

  • Enjoy!
