Italian Green Vegetable Puree

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 Italian Green Vegetable 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.
