Baby's Cheesy Pasta

I haven't posted a great deal of recipes for the little munchkins lately (although I have some things in the works), so I thought I would tell you about this super simple homemade baby food recipe that was one of Luc's favorites. It was invaluable to me because I could whip it up with items I always had on hand when life became less than organized. I adapted this recipe from one on Wholesome Baby Food (an absolutely excellent website BTW). This is a great recipe to introduce baby to cheese, starting from 8 months and Luc, who is now almost two, will still gladly eat this little dish.

Baby's Cheesy Pasta

- 1 cup pastina (baby pasta)
- 1 1/2 cups salt-free chicken broth (or vegetable)
- 1/2 cup carrot puree (about 2 Baby Cubes worth)
- 3 tbsp grated cheddar cheese

Cook pastina in the broth in a medium saucepan according to the length of time on the package. Drain any unabsorbed broth and save for another purpose.

Stir in carrot puree and cheese. Serve to hungry little people.

* Makes 4-5 baby servings
* Can be frozen although better texture if it isn't. Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
