There are (many) times when I just don’t feel like cooking dinner, and a turkey sandwich will suffice, but D still needs a healthy meal. This spinach pesto has become one of my quick go-to meals for those ‘sandwich nights’:
1 1/2 C. Organic frozen spinach (of course you can use fresh, I just keep frozen on-hand)
1/4 C. Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. Butter or Olive oil
Cooked whole wheat pasta of choice (preferably finger-friendly).
Cook spinach according to directions. When done, drain in colander and transfer to food processor. Add parmesan and butter/olive oil and puree mixture. Toss with pasta and top with some fresh parmesan.
The best part about this recipe is that Declan absolutely loves it (when he likes a certain food, he tends to be extremely messy eating it!), and it’s really quick and easy for me to whip-up. Do you have any go-to baby/toddler recipes? Please share your recipes in the comments:
