Italian Green Vegetable Puree- homemade baby food

Share

Yum

It wasn't until after my kids were out of the baby food puree stage that I realized just how easy it was to cook for them. Now I see so clearly how just a few veggies mixed with a little somethin' somethin' (pasta sauce and parmesan in the case of this recipe) can transform simple vegetables into something magical. Watch your baby's face as he tries his first, then second, then third bites of this delicious puree. I always found that seeing the wonder on my kids' faces as they started discovering new foods and flavors to be among the most exciting and precious moments of my early mommyhood.

    I added ground turkey to it and doubled the batched. I just stuck it in the freezer! What a great dinner for my baby boy – so nutritious! Thanks!

    I made this for the first time tonight and my 11 month old son LOVED it! He ended up having almost 2 servings of it. I mixed it with rice, because that is what the rest of the family was having for dinner.

    That looks great! Let’s hope my 17 month old will eat his veggies. Where do you find alphabet pasta? I’ve tried Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods with no luck.

      I’ ve found the alphabet pasta and tiny flower pasta at the local grocery store (Winco). But they weren’t with all of the pasta where ou would expect them to be. They were down the ethnic isle, with Mexican foods. Don’t know if that will help any but maybe ask the store to see if they are in a different place. I lucked upon them about a year ago and make homemade “spaghettiOs” with the tiny flower pasta, tomato soup and Italian seasoning.
