I'm not sure how many of your kids this would go over well with, but one thing mine like is their special pizza. You can either make your own or buy the pre-made pizza dough at the store that they keep by the biscuits. I lay that on our pizza stone, mix some powdered ranch dressing mix with mayo & a pressed clove of garlic. Spread that on instead of pizza sauce. Julienne veggies of your choice (we usually use carrots, bell peppers, olives & broccoli, but the broccoli gets chopped pretty finely) & sprinkle them over your ranch pizza sauce. Then cover them with grated mozarella & parmesan. The flavor is really good & they don't usually freak out about seeing the veggies because they're pretty well covered with cheese.
Another thing is that if you either finely chop or puree veggies like carrots, peppers, zucchini, they go great in spaghetti sauce or lasagna.
Yes, we eat a lot of Italian food.
