just wanted to let ellie2 know that there's no problem with the eggs as they do actually 'cook' on the hot pasta. It is the same way you make carbonara. Your children are safe eating this.
Although I used the vegetables that were listed, I think it would be very easy to use whatever was handy. Although the sauce is very good (and doesn't taste like you are eating raw eggs)I felt a bit apprehensive about eating raw eggs and therefore would hesitate giving this dish to children.
