Pasta with Jam Sauce

Leave it to actor Misha Collins to ruin strawberry jam for me. Strawberry jam isn’t supposed to be mixed with tomato sauce and orange juice and ladled over pasta wheels with Goldfish crackers, blackberries, chocolate chips and carrot juice (so I’m told).

But tell that to the 4-year-old, Collins’ son, who came up with this very sweet, somewhat crunchy and somehow still pasta-ey recipe.

The first bite wasn’t that bad, not really. The second was a little more challenging. And the third? I’m not ready to talk about it. I’m still recovering.
